    Description

    The Adventures of Robin Hood (Warner Brothers, 1938). One Sheet (27.5" X 41").
    One of the grandest swashbuckling adventures of all time, this film presented in the full glory of Technicolor, stars Olivia de Havilland, Basil Rathbone, Claude Rains, and, of course, Errol Flynn as the dashing outlaw Robin Hood. From the famed archer'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. With the classic motif of title painted on a shield, and the colorful image of the dashing Flynn loosing an arrow while "Maid Marian" (Olivia de Havilland) is tucked safely behind him, this poster stands out as one of the defining moments in Hollywood's storied history. Flynn was born to play Robin Hood and this always elusive poster has been ardently sought for decades by collectors. The one sheet displays exceptionally well after professional conservation work such as airbrushing to the bottom border and "Flynn,'" touchup to light fold wear and pinpoint crossfold separations and slight color enhancement in the faces. Very Fine on Linen.
