The original 1938 Robin Hood film,
The Adventures of Robin Hood,
starring Errol Flynn, Olivia de Havilland,
Claude Raines and Basil Rathbone,
remain one of my all-time favorite films,
one I've seen and enjoyed at least thirty
The thing to consider when you see this film
is that although Olivia de Havilland was
only 25 years-old when she filmed this,
and three years younger than Vivian Leigh
with whom she starred in Gone With the Wind
the following year, yet she was cast to play
Melanie, Scarlett's older sister, and was superb.
She is the only star of either film that's
still alive, and remains movie royalty.
Of the upcoming remake of the gritty swashbuckler,
due out in May, we now finally have a film trailer
to analyze for great portent.
Robin Hood, starring Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett,
William Hurt, Mark Strong, Mark Addy, Max von Sydow
and Oscar Isaac, directed by Ridley Scott.
Opening May 14, 2010.
