Ensemble Dark Horse: Olivia de Havilland as Maid Marian, Basil Rathbone as Guy of Gisbourne, Ian Hunter as King Richard the Lion-Heart and Robert Warwick as Sir Geoffrey.
Spiritual Licensee: Of the novel "Ivanhoe" but it pales in comparison to actual adaptations of the novel.
Tough Act to Follow: For many this is the definitive film version of Robin Hood... Unless it is a portrayal in a film adaptation of "Ivanhoe."
What an Idiot: Marian's attempts to hide the fact that she is trying to warn the King are ... less than convincing. She writes a letter to King Richard, telling him of the assassination plot and then hears a knock on her bedroom door. Despite the fact that there is a) a lady's maid next to her who successfully hides and b) a fire burning on the hearth right behind her, she neither gives the letter to the maid nor throws it in the fire, nor does she seek a delay with the obvious "I'm getting dressed!" or somesuch. Instead she puts it in a conspicious box on a table that she claps shut and still has her hands on when Sir Guy bursts through the door, and that she stares at while he toys with it.
