Over Christmas, one of my regular visitors, Christian Roy, informed me of an important omission in my review of the script of Walt Disney’s Story of Robin Hood (1952). This was during the early scene at The Great Hall in Nottingham Castle when the Royal Family are gathered to bid farewell to King Richard and the army as they depart for the Holy Land. I had missed out the section when the old Sheriff of Nottingham asking Richard if he and his men can join his Crusading army. This was a pinnacle moment in the whole film and Clement had dropped a clanger!
So this had left me with a problem, do I delete all the parts and start again or just insert the missing scene. I have opted to repost the scenes gradually in order, on a weekly basis, so as to keep some form of continuity under the Script Label. I hope my regular readers will not mind reading again Lawrence Watkin’s wonderful screenplay and a special thank you to Christian for pointing this out to me.
