Ep. 07: The Challenge
The Sheriff thinks one of his men is the best archer in the land. Sir Richard of the Lea says he knows of someone even better – Robin – and a contest is arranged. The outcome is never in doubt, but Sir Richard soon has cause to regret that he ever supported Robin.
The original Robin Hood series, intended primarily for children, featuring Robin of Locksley and his merry men in Sherwood Forest, who protect England from the evil machinations of Prince John and the Sheriff of Nottingham, while good King Richard is away at the Crusades. An unusual television series at the time in that it frequently re-used the same actors in different roles, or different actors in a recurring roles.
The legend of Robin Hood is given a grand retelling in this popular an long running series made for television (1955-58). Filmed in Great Britain with the handsome and dashing British actor Richard Greene as Robin, the “outlaws” of Sherwood Forest watch over the people of England and protect them from the cruelty and greed of the ruling aristocrats.
