Robin Hood

Categories: [ TV/Cinema ]



Richard Lionheart dies in France on his way back to England from the crusade. His knight, Robert Locksley carries his crown back to his brother John, but is killed in an ambush by Godfrey, a traitor working for the king Philippe of France. The ambush fails thanks to Robin Longstride, a deserter, who agrees to bring the crown to John. Pretending to be Robert Locksley, Robin delivers the crown, then goes to Nottingham to bring Locksley's sword back to his father. The father convinces Robin to stay under the assumed identity, and gradually falls in love with Marian, Robert's widow. When King John's taxmen come and take the last of the estate's grain, Robin ambushes them to recover and sow it. In the meanwhile, King John has named his friend Godfrey the new minister of finances, but the latter pillages the north of England with French soldiers in disguise, to upset the barons and turn them against King John, weakening the country and allowing King Philippe to invade England. When King John comes in the North to hear the barons' complaints, Robin convinces them to unite and prevent the invasion. The barons accept, in exchange for King John's promise to sign a charter defining the people's right, and together they manage to push the French army back as they debark. But King John later goes back on his promise, and declares Robin an outlaw. With Marian and a few friends, he takes refuge in the forest of Sherwood.
