The Adventures of Robin Hood

Corrected entry: In the Archery Tournament scene, the second archer in Sir Guys team of three is introduced by the herald as Elwyn the Welshman. When they compete as individuals and he is eliminated, another herald refers to him as Owen the Welshman.

Correction: Not sure how you came up with this one. He is introduced as "Elwyn" both times, with the "L" distinctly audible. In addition, the DVD subtitles also give his name as Elwyn. There is no mistake here.

Corrected entry: Robin and Little John using staves fight over who has right of way on a log over a stream. Little John wins by knocking Robin into the water. When they get to the bank, Robin is holding his head complaining about how it feels after it got hit. This never occured. Just before he went into the water Little John hit him on his foot or toe and as Robin bent over Little John thumped him across the back.

Correction: And he couldn't have hit his head as he fell into the shallow stream?

Corrected entry: At the very beginning of the movie when Sir Guy is berating Mutch the miller for killing the deer there is a soldier sitting on his horse directly behind him. The next shot he's standing behind him, then back on the horse and finally standing behind him again.

Correction: Dickon Malbete was standing next to Much-the-Miller's-Son. The man on horseback has a goatee, and the man who is claimed to be the blooper does not. It is just camera angles.

Maid Marian: Why, you speak treason.
Robin Hood: Fluently.



When Will Scarlet finds the injured Much in Sherwood Forest about three quarters of the way through the movie, a white vehicle can be seen travelling from right to left in the background.



Listen carefully to the sounds the swords make during the final battle at Nottingham castle. When Robin and Sir Guy are fighting, they sound different (clanging as opposed to clicking) than all the other combatants. The reason for the discrepancy is simple. Errol Flynn and Basil Rathbone, both experienced performers, are using real steel swords for their one-on-one fight scenes, while everyone else is using plastic props.
