classic hollywood: Errol Flynn in “The Adventures of Robin Hood” (1938)

Another 8×11 photo I have in my collection of Errol Flynn is from the film “The Adventures of Robin Hood” from 1938.  The film was originally planned for James Cagney, but he walked out and the role was given to Flynn and it would be a blessing for the actor as it was the second highest earning film of 1938 and it led to two more Warner Bros. color epics featuring Flynn.

Also, the film would win three of its four nominated Academy Awards and has appeared in various rankings as one of America’s top films of all time, as well as making AFI’s #18 heroes on “AFI’s 100 Years… 100 Heroes and Villains” list and #11 on AFI’s “100 Years of Film Scores” list.
