Top: Robin Hood, Marian, and Tuck fight off an attack from Gisborne. Wall plaque, Nottingham Castle. Left: Robin Hood (Errol Flynn) clashes swords with Guy of Gisborne (Basil Rathbone) in a sequence which would elevate Gisborne's status as a villian in the legend far higher than any of the original ballads or tales ever did. Right: Robin Hood's true enemy the Sheriff of Nottingham (Robert Shaw) in gory and gruelling battle against Robin (Sean Connery). For more pictures of their battles click here.
