The Adventures of Robin Hood

Other mistake: At the beginning of the movie in the castle two servants pull out a large chair for Robin to sit down. After the spear is thrown at the chair Robin picks it up over his head and throws it a good 15 feet. Quite a feat for something that was made out of solid oak.

Revealing mistake: 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.

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.
