So if you look up Robin Hood on IMDB, there are well over a dozen takes on this iconic character over the last several decades. From the legendary Errol Flynn’s take (My grandfathers favorite) to the animated Disney version (probably still my favorite) or even the not-going-to-attempt-an-accent Kevin Cosner, Prince of Thieves version (Every piano players favorite, since they all know how to play Bryan Adams “Everything I Do”) few characters over time have sparked our imaginations like Robin the Hood. Yours truly even dressed up as Robin Hood not once, but twice, for Halloween. First as a kid and secondly in college, although my later costume looked more like Peter Pan. Whether it is his roguish charm or noble fight against injustice, he has always been a source of inspiration. Heck, stealing from the rich to give to the poor? You could argue he was the world’s first Democrat!
Now Ridley Scott is joining the bevy of filmmakers to tell this tale and so far it looks pretty good. The film is scheduled for release on May 14th and stars Russell Crowe as our hero. (He at least has an accent.) A brunette Cate Blanchet stars as maid Marion and Mark Strong plays Sir Godfrey. Here is a look a few different Robin Hood incarnations over the years.
So all of these Robin Hoods has my asking this question. What character has the most films about him/her?
Discuss amongt yourself. (I would probably say Jesus)
