If you're looking for inspiration for your next haircut, look no further than The Adventures of Robin Hood.

And the iconic Prince John:
I was really excited to see this movie. I've loved the Robin Hood story since I was little. When I was in elementary school, I had a cassette tape of the Robin Hood legend that I got in a kid's meal that I would play constantly before going to bed.
Robin Hood has all the characteristics of a hero that I admire: a higher purpose, a loyal following, skill, and a quick wit. Watching Errol Flynn's interpretation of the iconic character reminded me of others like Luke Skywalker and Spiderman that I've loved all my life.
This movie holds up over 70 years later in an age of superheroes and big, expensive effects (both of which I love, by the way). I can see people young and old sitting down to watch this movie and loving it.
The movie is really colorful, both figuratively and literally. According to IMDb, the production used all 11 Technicolor cameras in existence to shoot and returned them at the end of each day to Technicolor. It was clear they were trying to take advantage of the new technology, using bright, colorful costumes and design elements that really make the picture pop.
The film is also noted for its great and influential sound effects and score. Even if you don't know about its technical influence, this is a fun, exciting movie to watch and lives on as one of the greatest adventure movies of all time.
