The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938)

 My first classic film on the big screen this year is The Adventures of Robin Hood.

I was a bit sad that I was the only one in the theater, though.  Granted it's a 10 am matinee, but still.  Just me?  For a great, rousing classic movie like Robin Hood?  I haven't much to say about it that hasn't been said by others.  The film is thoroughly enjoyable and was, of course, even better on the big screen.  Love those sword fights. Love the colors and Maid Marian's costumes really look fabulous up close.  You can pick out details in the fabrics, etc.  I'm particularly fond of the gown she wears to the archery tournament.  The white fading into the blue is just exquisite.  I may have had a private screening, but I wouldn't have missed it.

2014 has not started out well for me, so I apologize for the absence.  Hopefully things will improve.
