Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: IMDb -emovieguide.net - celebrity.premiere.com - hollywood.premiere.com - tcm.com: «Welcome to Sherwood: The Making of The Adventures of Robin Hood (2003) takes us behind the scenes during production of the Warner Bros. classic - from the development of the script to the fight choreography. You'll also learn more about the history of the Robin Hood legend and what prompted WB to make The Adventures of Robin Hood. In addition, we learn how close James Cagney came to bouncing around Sherwood Forest in green tights instead of Errol Flynn and what happened to the horse Olivia de Havilland rode in the film and why two men are credited with directing the film. The documentary includes color home movie footage of the cast and crew on location plus interviews with film historians such as Rudy Behlmer, Bob Thomas, Leonard Maltin and Robert Osborne. One thing the documentary doesn't go into is the relationship between Errol Flynn and director Michael Curtiz. In all the two men made 12 films together, including The Charge of the Light Brigade and Captain Blood, the film that made Flynn a star. Despite their long history and the string of hits they made, they hated each other. It just goes to show, you don't have to be friends to do good work. By the way, if you're a fan of The Adventures of Robin Hood, you'll be glad to know that the film is being released this month for the first time ever on DVD. The film has been digitally remastered - so it looks great - and the DVD has tons of special features including this documentary and the TCM Original documentary, Glorious Technicolor».
