    Description

    Adventures of Robin Hood (Warner Brothers, 1938). Half Sheet (22" X 28") Style B. Many Robin Hoods have graced the screen, but neither an animated fox nor a spottily accented Kevin Costner (certainly not animated) can match Errol Flynn. Warner Brothers originally planned for James Cagney in the role, but he quit the studio, delaying the production for three years. Flynn performed with such relish that not only did he create the standard for all future Robin Hoods; he also etched for himself Hollywood immortality with the legendary turn. Despite this career-defining part, he actually found the character boring, perhaps too noble for anything but one-note heroics. He adopts his most romantic pose in this rare Style B half sheet -- clutching Maid Marian on the back of his rearing horse -- and while all art on this film is highly sought, this poster should be in even greater demand. Professional restoration has repaired some edge wear and cross-fold separation, and tanning of the linen paper stock has been diminished. Flynn's hero has never looked more triumphant than here. Fine on Paper.
