    The Adventures of Robin Hood (Warner Brothers, 1938). Title Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    One of the greatest swashbuckling adventure films ever produced, this rousing epic has it all: action, romance, humor, adventure, a great cast, lavish costumes, gorgeous Technicolor, a solid script, and some of the best performances in the careers of stars Errol Flynn, Olivia DeHaviland, Claude Rains, and Basil Rathbone, not to mention such stalwart character actors as Alan Hale, Eugene Pallette, Una O'Connor, and Herbert Mundin. Originally, James Cagney was slated to play the outlawed Earl of Locksley, but as great as Cagney was, Flynn's performance in this career-defining role is so strong, it's almost impossible to imagine anyone else donning the Lincoln green tights. At the time of its release, this was the most expensive film Warner Brothers had yet produced, costing a then-staggering $2 million. Fortunately, virtually every dime ended up on the screen, as this is one of the most lavish, sumptuous movies in Hollywood history. Not surprisingly, paper from this title is extremely popular with collectors, and bidding wars are common when prime pieces come to the auction block. Offered here is a remarkable, linen finish title card for this great film. It had pinholes in the border and the field, a top left corner bend, corner bumps, and a minor tear in the right border, but after expert professional restoration, these flaws are virtually invisible. If you're looking for the perfect piece from this classic film, you need look no further. Very Fine-.
