Factual error: Robin and Azeem land at the white cliffs and Robin says something like, 'Tonight we will dine with my father'. Those white cliffs are the Seven Sisters in East Sussex, about 200 miles from Nottingham. It would probably take about two weeks to walk it. They also reach Hadrian's Wall in the next scene, which is 200 miles further north than Nottingham.
Trivia: There was a series made in the UK (and very popular in many other countries) in the 80's called Robin of Sherwood. One of the characters was a Saracen called Nasir. He was not originally supposed to be one of the regulars, but the actor (Mark Ryan) got on so well with the rest of the cast, the decided not to kill Nasir, but keep him on as one of Robin's men. When Robin Hood Prince of Thieves was in development, a character called Nazeem was written because the writer thought that the Saracen was a traditional part of the legend (along with Little John, Will Scarlet and Marian). The name was changed to Azeem because they found out that the character was unique to Richard Carpenter's Robin of Sherwood. So, thanks to a random piece of casting in the UK in the 80's, we were given Morgan Freeman's Azeem.
Trivia: There is a close relation between Sean Connery and Robin Hood. Connery played Robin Hood in the movie "Robin and Marian" in 1976. His son, Jason Connery, played this same character in "Robin of Sherwood," the TV series, in the eighties. And, finally, he had a small part in "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves" as King Richard.
Sheriff of Nottigham: That's it then! Cancel the kitchen scraps for lepers and orphans, no more merciful beheadings, and call off Christmas!
Question: Who exactly are the masked cult of which the Sheriff is a member, shown at the beginning when he unmasks and demands that Robin's father join them or die? If memory serves, the cult and the Sheriff's affiliation with them isn't referenced again at any point in the film. I know the Sheriff and the Witch are dark magic practitioners, but that was suggested to be a private thing between them in the bowels of the castle.Purple_Girl
Question: When Robin and Azeem are catapulted into the castle near the end, Will says something just after the go. I thought he said "Well BLOW me, they made it", but another site says that he swears, if he did the film wouldn't be a PG would it? And when the film was shown on the television, he didn't say anything. So does anyone know the actual line?
