Adventures of Robinhood (1938)

After some strange happenings here in the past 2,3 days, I wanted to blog about them …. but, to forget all those, i saw this movie, after which, I can’t resist writing about it. Well, since Hitchcock’s 40’s movies are Black and white, I thought, movies were in B&W till 50’s. But, I was wrong. This movie was picturised in 1938 itseems. Still, its a colour movie.

Well, to begin with, this is the tale of Robinhood, the outlaw whose story we have all read at some time or the other as a child. Its a colourful movie… in a literal sense. Colourful costumes, colourful forests, colourful sets – everything is full of colours. Kids can as well learn colour identification from it….🙂

Well made movie. I realised how difficult it is to make movies like this, as I passed through the movie…. Not that there are no such movies at all…. but, given the fact that it was made in 1938 made me feel so. Technically speaking, I am not well aware of filmi techniques.😉 nevertheless, I felt it was well made. All the stunts were perfect. Guess, telugu movies with kings and wars learnt from these. Sword-fights were very well picturised. Robin hood’s agility amazed me, his valor too…

Coming to performances, i don’t know any of the actors, being very poor at identifying Hollywood people. However, I very much liked the comic expressions of he character Much particularly. He had this kind of face, which can show various comic expressions, without a single dialogue ..🙂 Even the villains – Sir Guy and Prince John contributed their bit to comedy in their own way.

Well, logical possibilities apart, its a great movie to watch. It is a bit hyperbolic…. but still, its a joy watching it all through. The hollywoodian obsession to smooching surprised me. There are scenes which appeared to have been made up exclusively to end in a smooching. But for this factor, the movie is a joy to watch…..
