Notable for being the only major film about Robin Hood to portray his betrayal and death as found in the medieval ballad tradition. It is also unusual for its portrayal of King Richard as brutal and bloodthirsty, when he usualy gains the reputation of a Hero against his corrupt brother, who here seems relatively soft by comparison.

* NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: Connery, naturally, but also Nicol Williamson, who plays the Yorkshireman Little John with his native Lanarkshire accent. Interestingly, English actors [[Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk Denholm Elliott]] (Will) and [[TheTwoRonnies Ronnie Barker]] (Tuck) also have Scottish accents, which suggests this may be deliberate in order to make it less jarring that England's most famous outlaw is being played by Hollywood's most famous Scotsman!

* AFatherToHisMen: A rare villainous example. The Sheriff is clearly distressed when his men are hurt. He ensures they have medical attention and are properly buried.



* {{Flynning}}: Averted. As in Lester's previous 'Three Musketeers' films, the swordplay is rough, bloody and clearly exhausting.
