* FollowTheLeader: The film copies so many of the unique and distinctive elements of the 1980s British Robin Hood TV series ''Series/RobinOfSherwood'' that the creators of the latter actually briefly wondered whether they should sue. They quickly decided against the inevitable hassle and stresses, and just waved it all off.

Including ones set in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance or swashbuckler films in general.

Added DiffLines:

** Could double as ArtisticLicenseHistory, as the producers wanted Connery in the film in some way, and after he turned down being Robin Hood's father, Richard was the most likely role after that (and he is a very kingly actor).
