The Adventures of Robin Hood Coming to Blu-ray

Warner Home Video has announced the 1938 Errol Flynn classic The Adventures of Robin Hood is coming to Blu-ray Disc on August 26.

The Adventures of Robin Hood was originally released on HD DVD two years ago (read our review) but was never given a Blu-ray Disc treatment, until now.

Warner will be essentially porting the HD DVD version onto Blu-ray so all the technical specs and supplemental features are identical.

The Adventures of Robin Hood will be presented in widescreen 1.37:1 1080p video and 1.0 Dolby Digital audio.

Supplemental features are extensive, more than enough for any Robin Hood fan. The full list is as follows.

  • Commentary by film historian Rudy Behlmer
  • Leonard Maltin hosts Warner Night at the Movies 1938 featuring Vintage Newsreel, Musical Short Freddie Rich and His Orchestra, Classic Cartoon Katnip Kollege and Angels with Dirty Faces Theatrical Trailer
