“Alan Hackney’s script and Terence Fisher’s direction keep the incidents jouncing…Greene is aptly limber, and Peter Cushing and Richard Pasco are excellent…Credit the Hammer-Yeoman production for giving Hopalong Hood a little reality.”
– Howard Thompson, The New York Times
“Beautifully shot in widescreen on location in Ireland…Peter Cushing makes a great Sheriff of Nottingham.”
– George R. Reis, dvddrive-in.com
Hammer Films’ Sword of Sherwood Forest (1960) is a big-screen adaptation of the popular television series, The Adventures of Robin Hood (1955-59); it stars the same dashing actor, Richard Greene, as the aristo man of the people, and is directed by Terence Fisher, a Hammer favorite who also helmed many of the series episodes. As in so many adaptations of the classic tale, we have the villainous Sheriff of Nottingham (a superb Peter Cushing), the lovely Maid Marian (a plush Sarah Branch), and a handful of terrific cross-the-pond actors: Niall MacGinnis, Richard Pasco, Jack Gwillim, Nigel Green, and even – in a tiny role – Oliver Reed.
