Summary

Summary

From Errol Flynn to Kevin Costner to Daffy Duck, the bandit of Sherwood Forest has gone through a variety of incarnations on the way to becoming a cinematic staple. The historic Robin Hood - actually an amalgam of several outlaws of mediaeval England - was continually transformed by oral tradition to become the romantic and deadly archer-swordsman who robbed from the rich to give to the poor. This image was reinforced by popular literature, song, and in the 20th century, cinema.
