    Description

    The Adventures of Robin Hood (Warner Bros., 1945). Fine+ on Linen. First Post-War Release Italian Foglio (27.5" X 39.5") Luigi Martinati Artwork.
    In one of the greatest adaptations of a folktale ever projected onto the silver screen, Errol Flynn's landmark performance as the Prince of Thieves cemented his place as a reigning king of adventure, defining his career more so than any other role before or since. An excellent choice for Warner Bros. as their first big-budget picture in glorious Technicolor, this grand swashbuckler has become the stuff of movie legend with its perfect blend of action, romance, humor, and drama. The excellent performances of Olivia de Havilland as the radiant Maid Marian, Basil Rathbone as the aristocratic Sir Guy of Gisbourne, and Claude Rains as the conniving Prince John further bolster this already impressive production, and perfectly compliment Flynn's swaggering take on the famous thief. It's the first time Heritage has had the opportunity to present this style of Italy's magnificent and scarce foglio posters. Errol Flynn cuts a dashing figure in this stone litho illustration by Luigi Martinati, and the poster has had professional restoration to fold wear and separation, pinholes, a few tears into the interior and some chips in the borders. The borders have been airbrushed.
