Another British Robin Hood film will be released on DVD, this time it's the Hammer film A CHALLENGE FOR ROBIN HOOD directed by C.M. Pennington-Richards in 1967 which will be released by Optimum Releasing on January 18.
Robin Hood (Barrie Ingham) again robs from the rich to give to the poor. The evil Sheriff of Nottingham (John Arnatt) is still his foe, but Robin's primary adversary is his own cousin Roger (Peter Blythe). Roger has burned the will of Robin's father which promises all land and money to his son. Roger takes control of the estate, and again Robin is an outlaw hiding out in Sherwood Forest. The sheriff is amused at Roger's inability to corral his cousin Robin, who cavorts with Little John and Friar Tuck in bucolic splendour. The trio must rescue Maid Marian (Gay Hamilton) and her brother from the castle of the wicked King John.
