Alex Bryce and Richard Todd


Alex Bryce (1905-1960) was a Scottish screenwriter, cinematographer and film director. During the filming of Walt Disney’s Story of Robin Hood and his Merrie Men, Bryce was in charge of the ‘Second Unit’, which specialised in all the action shots and fight scenes. These included the ambush of the Royal Coach, the rescue of Scathelok in the market square and Robin’s various battles with the Sheriff. In the picture above (kindly sent in by Neil) we can see Alex Bryce and Richard Todd (Robin Hood) on location at Burnham Beeches in Buckinghamshire.

It seems that Alex did all the outside action sequences for the film - very well too. It was very well cut into the interior action. I wonder if he did the early shots with Richard Todd practising his bowmanship which were partially filmed at Burnham Beeches then back on a marvellous studio set at Denham

Ken Annakin describes how he had to match Bryce's action shots with close shots of his actors. I presume this is how they linked the sequences?
