Hammer Horror and Robin Hood

Even in their first colour film there was something unmistakably evident of what would soon be referred to as the Hammer Horror style. These pictures are from The Men of Sherwood, the first Robin Hood film to be made by the famous Bray Studios. To find more information about The Men of Sherwood click here.

Hammer films would be associated with thre more Robin Hood films. Sword of Sherwood Forest (1960), Challenge for Robin Hood (1976), and Wolfshead (1969).
