** While Richard Carpenter deserves credit for giving Marion back her street-cred (she was quite the {{Badass}} in the old ballads, before Hollywood got hold of her and turned her into a DamselInDistress) by making her a useful and skilled member of the outlaws, she also goes through an ''awful'' lot of bondage and brainwashing in his scripts.

Robert Addie, who played Guy of Gisburne, died in 2003 and Richard Carpenter died in 2012.
