Filmsite review of what it describes "the Errol Flynn picture".

Adventure Films
Extensive look at the genre from swashbucklers to "Lawrence of Arabia" to disaster

  • Adventure films are often set in an historical period, and may include adapted stories of historical or literary adventure heroes (Robin Hood, Tarzan, and Zorro for example), kings, battles, rebellion, or piracy.

  • The first successful swashbuckler star of the 1920s was the charming, exuberant, gracefully-athletic, gymnastic actor Douglas Fairbanks Sr., who performed most of his own stunts and daring swordplay in a wide range of costume adventures , starring as Zorro, Robin Hood (in the large-scale film version Robin Hood (1922) ), and the acrobatic D'Artagnan (in the film adaptation of Dumas' adventure classic The Three Musketeers (1921) ).

  • One of the best silent swashbucklers was Robin Hood (1922) in which he starred as the famed adventurer in love with Maid Marian - he also wrote the film's screenplay and financed the expensive film.

  • [The Robin Hood story is one of the most-often filmed swashbucklers - also the animated Robin Hood (1973) , Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991) , and Robin Hood: Men in Tights (1993) .] In the first of four film versions of The Thief of Bagdad (1924) , this one directed by Raoul Walsh, Fairbanks played the role of a roguish thief who used a giant genie's magic to outwit Bagdad's evil Caliph, and win the heart of princess Julanne Johnson.

  • The latter was his most popular film and the quintessential adventure-tale swashbuckler about the Robin Hood legend.
