If prankish Fairbanks was a man's Robin Hood, handsome, romantic Flynn performs for everybody else.

It is cinematic pageantry at its best, a highly imaginative telling of folklore in all the hues of Technicolor.

One of the few great adventure movies that you can pretend you are treating the kids to when you are really treating yourself.

In these cynical days when swashbucklers cannot be presented without an ironic subtext, this great 1938 film exists in an eternal summer of bravery and romance.

Movie pageantry at its best, done in the grand manner of silent spectacles, brimming over with the sort of primitive energy that drew people to the movies in the first place.

Few storybooks have been more brilliantly brought to life, page for page, chapter for chapter, derring-do for derring-do.
