Adventures Of Robin Hood
Vintage Ads recently posted this set of posters for the 1938 film, The Adventures of Robin Hood. Always one of my favorite films, I like it now more for the supporting cast than for Errol Flynn. Trivia: The palomino horse that Maid Marian (Olivia DeHavilland) rides in one scene was named Golden Cloud, until Roy Rogers bought him and renamed him Trigger.
