    The Adventures of Robin Hood (Warner Brothers, 1938). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    For fans of classic, swashbuckling adventure, it doesn't get much better than this! When Warner Brothers decided to remake the story of Robin Hood (the previous version, starring Douglas Fairbanks, had been released in 1922), they pulled out all the stops, making it one of the biggest pictures of 1938. Presented in the full glory of Technicolor were such major stars as Olivia de Havilland, Basil Rathbone, Claude Rains, and, of course, Errol Flynn as the dashing outlaw Robin Hood. The result was an outstanding film, still fully capable of thrilling young and old alike. Its deft blend of humor, romance, adventure, suspense, and drama easily elevates this to the level of a timeless classic, one that can be enjoyed time and time again. From Robin Hood's first encounter with Prince John, complete with a deer slung over his shoulders, to the final battle with the castle guards and the revelation of King Richard, this movie is the stuff of legends. Flynn's portrayal of Robin Hood has never been equaled, much less exceeded, although many have tried in the decades since its original release. Posters from this classic film are highly desirable, perhaps none more so than the classic one sheet, with its dynamic image of Robin ready to loose his ever-present arrow. Bold and striking, few images from this era can compare to this one for sheer drama. This poster was originally folded, as most posters of this era were, and there are some pinholes in the corners, but professional linen backing has all but made these flaws invisible. There is some evidence of water damage at the bottom of the poster, which resulted in some wrinkling when the poster was mounted, but this, also, is a minor flaw. The colors are bright and powerful, giving it a strong presence, and making it, without a doubt, a showpiece that will enhance any collection. Fine+ on Linen.
