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.

Other mistake: When King John's henchman goes to slap Robin across the face the camera suddenly cuts to Robin kicking the henchmen in the chest, sending the henchman backwards into the crowd. Indicating an obvious retake that Flynn had lost his footing during the 1st take. After the henchman barrels backward it suddenly cuts to John speaking with Gisbourne about revenge.

Continuity mistake: During the first fight scene in the castle, the fourth guard to die charges through the castle door and is killed by Robin Hood. The shot cuts and the guard is immediately followed by Sir Guy, but in between those two shots an arrow suddenly appears in the door which wasn't there before.

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.
