I Want to Live in Sherwood Forest

When I was a kid, I wanted to live in Sherwood Forest or in a castle nearby. Robin Hood was one of my heroes. The Adventures of Robin Hood starring Errol Flynn was my all time favorite movie. I could watch it over and over again. I had a record with the soundtrack, and while my friends hung posters of hairy rock stars on their wall, I hung a big black and white poster of Robin Hood. It was cool! Last week, I watched again The Adventures of Robin Hood with my husband, and it inspired me to create this cut of Robin meeting Little John on the log bridge. According to Howard Pyle, Little John was over 7 feet tall. He makes Robin Hood look like a little punk.

Love it! I remember that Errol Flynn poster hanging in your room, and I think I might have even listened to some of the soundtrack with you.
