Description

    The Adventures of Robin Hood (Warner Brothers, 1938). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    Warner Brothers was under quite a lot of pressure from the Breen office, who were apoplectic over the studio's popular gangster films. In order to assuage the censors, Warner Brothers gave the green light to this, a harmless historical epic, one that they felt sure would pass muster easily. The result was one of the greatest action epics ever filmed, with a great cast, a terrific story, and the advantage of glorious three-strip Technicolor. Starring Errol Flynn as Robin Hood, Olivia de Havilland as Maid Marion, Basil Rathbone as Sir Guy of Gisbourne, and Claude Rains as the avaricious Prince John, the movie succeeds on every level, and is just as rollicking a ride today as it was more than seventy years ago. The exceptional, original linen-finish lobby card offered here shows pinholes in the corners, one pinhole in the image area, a small tear in the left border, a corner bend in the bottom right, a light crease in the left border, and corner bumps, but these slight flaws fade to insignificance in light of the overwhelming eye-appeal of this classic beauty. This is a treasure worthy of your greatest consideration. Fine/Very Fine.
