A hugely underrated elegiac movie, Robin and Marian comes to DVD:
WOW!, Ian Holm is in this too.
I just may have to buy this sight unseen
Count me in as well
I haven't seen this wonderful picture since its initial release in the '70s. I am pre-ordering as soon as possible.
Love this movie. Read this on DVDFile yesterday as well. I'm in!
This is a Region 1 release, right? If so, then there is a God, as this is one of my most wanted DVDs!
Am I the only one who thinks Robin and Marian is Richard Lester's best film? Lots of people dismiss it, but it's an extremely poignant piece of cinema. In addition to the superb cast, Robin and Marian is also blessed with one of John Barry's most beautiful scores (I encourage you all to pick up the recent Silva re-recording) and one of the most disturbingly realistic swordfights on film. I'm thrilled that this masterpiece is coming to DVD.
Resurrecting a pretty old thread, but after finishing Errol Flynn's ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD this movie came to mind. What is the quality of the picture like? Does the film hold up? When I first saw this film years ago, I thought it was an interesting take on the Robin Hood legend. I vaguely remember this movie having a really good score.
Confused here. - just went all through DVDfile and find no mention of it. They have disc updates for this past thursday and one for today(Sunday) but neither have anything about robin and Marian. What other titles were mentioned with this. Why would Columbia announce anything now for next july?
Yes, the movie was released on DVD last year. That is what I meant by resurrecting a pretty old thread. I was curious what the transfer quality was like on the movie. I started thinking about the film after I finished watching Flynn's ROBIN HOOD.
I have this dvd, the transfer is fair at best but watchable, certainly not as good as Flynn's Robin Hood but not as bad as the original release of the Costner version.
Of course pq is subjective. What I'd describe as fair might be unacceptable to many and quite decent to others.
On a scale of strictly pq, with something like Shrek, Hulk, Nemo at the top (100) and the original Costner Robin Hood, original Enigma release, or Outland at the bottom (0) I'd give Robin and Marian about a 40, or 20 points lower than, say, The Lion in Winter.
While it was a good film, I'd strongly recommend you rent it first.
Thanks. If I can find it I will rent it first.
