maid marian in the 1950's robin hood television series

Bernadette O'Farrell (top pictures) played the part of Maid Marian for the first two seasons of 1950's television's the Adventures of Robin Hood. In these uncharacteristically passionate pictures she has just rescued Robin (Richard Greene), and needs an alibi. "Quickly Robin", the script reads, "Tie me up". But before leaving her alone Robin simply cannot resist planting a huge kiss firmly on her lips.
Patricia Driscoll (bottom pictures) took over as Marian for the final two seasons. Driscoll provided a much more impassioned version of the role, and can be seen here stopping at nothing in order to get the information Robin needs.

For more pictures of Maid Marian and her costumes visit here, here, and the Robin hood pictures website.

Bernadette O'Farrell was the first Maid Marian in "The Adventures of Robin Hood", but it has to be said her later replacement Patricia Driscoll proved more suitable.

well, to each his own; i much preferred bernadette o'farrell. she had the guts to wear pants before most other women in the entertainment industry, & i SO respected that.
i thought it was cool, too, that her light eyes & dark lashes always stood out, just above her high, sharp cheekbones {i'd love to look like her}. :^)

Good point Marji. But I think I fell in love with Patricia Driscoll during her Picture Book days. That tended to make me biased.
