The Three CommentEARS

Episode 8: Robin Hood

Welcome back to From Screen to Theme's monthly series: The Three CommentEARS! Your commentators for this return trip to Medieval England are Gamer Tuesday writer Pedro Hernandez, Saturday Matinee writer Albert Gutierrez, and Once Upon A Recap writer Kelvin Cedeno. For this episode, we take a look at 1973's Robin Hood, as we continue our summer of literary adaptations. Each of us share different perspectives towards this film, as we discuss the production of the film, earlier concepts set in the American South, literary comparisons to incarnations of Robin Hood and Aesop's fables, the film's connections to popular culture and world events of its era, and our own personal views towards the film in both a childhood context and as revisited nostalgia.
