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.
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.
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.
Trivia: 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.
