Which Robin Hood movie best captures the true spirit of the Middle Ages? Is it Russell Crowe's 2010 blockbuster? Kevin Costner's 1991 Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves? Disney's 1971 animated version? Or Errol Flynn's 1938 The Adventures of Robin Hood?
Tied for first place, both garnering 39% of the vote, are Disney's animated Robin Hood and Errol Flynn's The Adventures of Robin Hood. Interestingly, both of these movies offer a brighter and more chivalric version of the story as opposed to the gritty realism in Russell Crowe and Kevin Costner's films. The readers of this blog aren't convinced that a dirtier, coarser, bloodier version of the story is the way things really were.
