Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that The Adventures of Robin Hood is a 1938 movie starring Errol Flynn as the legendary medieval hero who steals from the rich and gives to the poor. Though there's little sexuality and no foul language, there's a lot of old-fashioned violence. Although there's no blood, lots of characters are hanged, skewered with swords and arrows, and generally attacked. Overall, this is a classic and as fine a representation as any "swashbuckling" Errol Flynn movie.
Robin kisses Marion's hand, and the couple kisses three times.
A lot of sword fighting, ambushes, and people who die from hanging, arrows to the heart, and stabs, but it's all bloodless and not realistic-looking. Robin talks about countrymen being tortured, with ears being cut off, eyes burned with hot irons, the "mistreatment of women," and other gruesome attacks. Robin is captured and beaten, falls down a staircase, is threatened with hanging. There's talk of assassination. One main character is stabbed and killed.
Lead characters fight against tyranny, corruption, and the oppression of the poor.
