Robin and Marian is a film that must stand or fall on the strength of its stars. Fortunately, it has two of the best."

The idea of picking up the Robin Hood legend 20 years later seems okay at first consideration, but Goldman and Lester never got beyond the premise.

The social satire gets precious at times, but Connery (sans hairpiece!) and Hepburn (swathed for the first hour in a nun's wimple) bring a fervid depth of feeling to their characters' rekindled courtship.

It's one of those rare movies, like King Hu's Touch of Zen, that handles its historical imagery so cleanly, and contains its pretensions so solidly within sure characterisation and plotting, that it is often sublimely expressive.

Connery and Hepburn seem to have arrived at a tacit understanding between themselves about their characters. They glow. They really do seem in love. And they project as marvelously complex, fond, tender people.

Robin And Marian would merely be an exercise in theory if the actors didn't make it breathe. Their scenes together a combination of easy humor and wistful grace notes, Connery and Hepburn find an easy rapport.

Err, 1976. Lots of big names.

Maybe I need to see this one again, but all I remember is that Robin Hood was older and there wasn't much going on, and it was boring, but I 'll give it another try someday.

The quite fine adventure film is full of heroes that are larger than life, villians who are more than evil, one of the greatest love stories ever told and one of the greatest adventures of all time. Believe me, this story is kind of funny between Robin and Marion in their old times when they grow older.
