The Adventures of Robin Hood 1938
Undoubtedly, 1938’s "The Adventures of Robin Hood" is one of the greatest action movies of all time. Produced in glorious Technicolor, "The Adventures of Robin Hood" has been the yardstick by which swashbuckling action movies have been measured for well over sixty years.
King Richard the Lion Heart goes off the fight in the Crusades, leaving his brother Prince John to fill the throne. But the kingdom suffers from Prince John's oppression. With strict laws and unfair taxation policies, many men, women, and children are forced out of their homes and into a life of poverty or even death. As long as King Richard is gone, they are powerless to rebel against Prince John. One man, however, is brave and noble enough to stand against this oppression and unite a band of merry men to aid him. That man is Sir Robin of Locksley.
