It’s injustice The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day hates, not the Normans.

Published at: Aug. 17, 2010, 9:50 a.m. CST by quint

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes pic! Welcome to Sherwood Forest, Constant Reader! And I’m talking about the real Sherwood Forest where the men wore tights and didn’t mumble about lions and lambs and other convoluted nonsense. I’m not 100% sure, but judging by the hairline of the photographer I’d guess that director Michael Curtiz. It’s very meta, I know… a photo of someone taking a photo. The handsome men on the hill in the tights are, of course, Errol Flynn as Robin and Patric Knowles as Will Scarlett. Here we are some 72 years after this film first saw release and it still stands as one of the most entertaining movies of all time. Flynn’s charm hasn’t been matched… in a funny kind of way the closest I can think of is Carey Elwes in Mel Brooks’ spoof Robin Hood: Men In Tights. Maybe the fox in the Disney movie… Also unmatched are Basil Rathbone’s Sir Guy of Gisbourne and Olivia de Havilland’s Technicolor beauty as Maid Marian. That sword fight between Rathbone and Flynn still gets my blood running. Anyway, hope you enjoy this candid moment from the set. It’s a surprisingly sharp picture for such an old still. Check it out (and click to make bigger):

If you have a pic you think should be included email me. I’m looking for the iconic, the rare or the just plain cool behind the scenes shots to feature here. I’m playing it safe with tomorrow’s Behind the Scenes pic! See ya’ then! -Quint quint@aintitcool.com Follow Me On Twitter

    DEFINITIVE ROBIN HOOD

    by Dick Bahls

    Costner's Kevin from California version and angry, fat Crowe's version should never have been made. They are what Tiny Tim Burton's Apes is to the original - it's like you're waking down the street, accidentaly step in dog poop, and have trouble getting it off your shoe. Then the arrogant dog's owner telling you that you are lucky to have stepped in their beatiful little angel's poo.

    Completely Agree About Elwes

    by SupermanIsMyGod

    I've always thought that not only would he have been a fantastic Robin Hood in a straight telling, but that he is an actor after his time. If he had been around in the 30's and 40's, he would have been a legendary star. Every time I watch Princess Bride I shake my head and wonder what could have been with his career. Teenagers today probably know him best as that guy who cut his own foot off in Saw.

    I can't get excited by tights and "merry" talk. I'm sorry.

    by Royston Lodge

    See now, I LIKE the "idea" of a "what-if-robin-hood-was-a-real-guy" movie. It's just that the track record is so poor for them, and I write that as a guy who doesn't hate Prince of Thieves.<p> The same goes for "realistic Camelot" movies and other "realistic mythology" movies, like The 13th Warrior for example. <p> The idea of a story that HONESTLY speculates about, "where the heck did these myths and legends come from," really appeals to me. <p> The best example I can think of is the Gerald Butler/Sarah Polley version of Beowulf & Grendel, where they never QUITE explain just WHAT Beowulf is. Maybe he's simply a mentally-challenged wildman? Maybe he's the last of the Neanderthals? Or maybe he just looks like he does because the film had such a low budget? But the movie doesn't really answer the question so the audience is free to speculate. <p> I wouldn't want to see someone try to do the Robin Hood thing again too soon, because it feels like that particular legend has been done enough recently. Same goes for the Camelot thing, what with First Knight, and King Arthur, and The Last Legion. Not to mention all the "realistic vampires" we've had over the past couple of decades. <p> Still, I don't think the "realistic mythology" idea should be cast-away as a guaranteed failure. In my mind's eye I can still envision a movie that "gets it right" so to speak.

    by boogel

    The butter has just been spread too thin. If you want to do a period piece there are a lot of great history to tap. I don't think anyone's done a movie about Queen Boudicea yet. And that would be epic (no really, not a pun). And there is all kinds of material on the Crusades out there that hasn't been touched. The Roman conquest of Carthage would kick ass.

    This and 'Robin of Sherwood' = definitive

    by kevred

    The're very different, so direct comparisons aren't much good - but for what they each are, there's simply no exceeding them.<p>The derring-do of Flynn and the profound earthiness and magic of the 80s ITV 'Robin of Sherwood' show a kind of commitment to and understanding of the potential of the material that nothing else comes close to approaching. Each represents the kind of magic that's possible in storytelling, and I don't think it's possible to exceed either.

  • Aug. 17, 2010, 12:48 p.m. CST

    More support for Elwes

    by kevred

    I also think that Elwes as Robin Hood was brilliant casting, and that he should have been a huge star. He just happened to run into the wall of lowbrow, ironic, unambitious entertainment which took over and dominated during his peak period. Princess Bride - an amazing, delightful anomaly - will give him a certain immortality. But it's too bad that he wasn't given the chance to play the dashing hero in more films. 'Men in Tights' simultaneously shows the potential while helping to kill it.

  • Aug. 17, 2010, 12:54 p.m. CST

    I pretty much hate this movie.

    by StarWarsRedux

    Seriously, Errol Flynn's Robin is kind of a dick to everybody. Bullying Friar Tuck doesn't really work for me. At least in the Costner version Tuck starts out as a dick, himself, so he deserves it. This is my least favorite version of the story. I'll take the Costner or Ridley Scott versions over it any time. <p>I keep the bees, and the bees keep me...

    I'm genuinely fascinated...

    by ConfusedPanda

    ...by Harry's perception of Mystery Science Theater 3000. He has always seemed so put off by the show, as if the show's purpose is simply unacceptable to him. It is clear in his writing that Harry will never warm up to the show, so I won't bother arguing points or considering such a change in attitude as a possibility. I just want to say that I like in AICN's interview with the boys that they implied they don't approach every movie they view as being "bad." They seem to have a genuine respect and knowledge for genre movies and oldies. They can enjoy a movie despite its budget, cast, and other production limitations if it's geeky at heart. At the same time, however, their love for these kinds of movies doesn't prevent them from recognizing elements of a movie that fail. Harry seems to have a more black and white view of movies: you can't like a movie AND laugh at particular elements of it. Seriously, I'm genuinely fascinated, and I look forward to even more talkbackers' comments concerning Harry's attitude toward the show.

Talk about the deleted SW scenes we will be getting in 2011 and hopefully a new Trilogy or how about a 3 hour epic level feature length movie showing events in between ep 3 and 4. !!!! Now that would rock. Robin Hood can so lick his monk sidekick's ass

    Believe Me, even if you only hit Military Targets.

    The government will still brand you a "Terrorist" because "Insurgent" just doesn't have the same ring to it.

    Not as gay as that Star Wars convention video

    by Guy Who Got A Headache And Accidentally Saves The World

    With a thousand fat virgins crying out in excitement of clip of a guy using a screwdriver on a laser sword. Fuck the world.

    Good Old Days

    by Grand Moff Toht

    Errol Flynn, Olivia De Havilland, Claude Rains, Basil Rathbone, and half the British colony in Hollywood. Huge sets, lush forest, brilliant music, good fun. Need I say more? I live in an age of computer generated mediocrity. No one larger than life anymore. As for gay, don't know about Patrick Knowles but Errol probably had 10x more women than every poster on this TB combined. And he liked to drink and brawl. Don't think that made him some kind of bull queer. You may fire when ready.

    My all time favorite movie!

    by diverdan

    LOVE this movie. Did get to see it on the big screen in '79 at the Cabot Street Cinema in Beverly MA. So great to see it on a huge screen. For those who want to get the dvd, the two disc special edition has lots of great extras including Bugs Bunny in Rabbit Hood and Daffy and Porky's Robin Hood Daffy. There's a blooper reel and outtakes, a short about Howard Hill who did the archery, A Robin Hood Radio show, a look at earlier Robin Hood screen adaptations.

    Six Demon Bag

    by Mr Lucas

    I think nana's memory was hazy. Doug Fairbanks Sr. was Robin Hood. Flynn's version was more or less based on Fairbanks'<P> Robin Of Sherwood fans may be pleased to know that the first 2 seasons are coming out on BD in October (from Network DVD).

    Tights

    by Mr Lucas

    Oh, and yes they did wear tights (hose)back then. I expect they'd be woven on a loom. Wool for the poor and silk for the rich. <p> http://www.larsdatter.com/hose.htm

  • Aug. 19, 2010, 4:09 p.m. CST

    Wearing tights is like Batman wearing fabric suit

    by TakingScorpiosCalls

    Whereas wearing some leather pants is akin to the rubber Batman suits.
