In this glorious, multi-Oscar-winning epic, Errol Flynn plays the titular character, who fights against Claude Rains’ evil Sheriff of Nottingham to win the heart of Maid Marian, played by Olivia de Havilland. The film also showcases the talents of Ian Hunter, Basil Rathbone, Melville Cooper, Alan Hale, and Patric Knowles. Originally planned as a $1.6 million production, this cost of this star-studded 1938 saga—one of the first shot in full Technicolor—eventually swelled to $2 million, making it the most expensive movie Warner Brothers had produced at the time. The National Film Preservation Board added The Adventures of Robin Hood to the National Film Registry in 1995.
