The Last Of Robin Hood
Errol Flynn, the swashbuckling Hollywood star and notorious ladies man, flouted convention all his life, but never more brazenly than in his last years when, swimming in vodka and unwilling to face his mortality, he undertook a liaison with an aspiring actress, Beverly Aadland. The two had a high-flying affair that spanned the globe and was enabled by the girl's fame-obsessed mother, Florence.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"[It] looks lowly and limp, and we seldom feel just how much is at stake."
‑ Anthony Lane, New Yorker
"Terrific performances help mine the poignancy in a legendary tabloid story."
‑ John Anderson, Newsday
"The careful handling of the story has the unintended effect of sucking the life ( and practically all the juice ) out of what could have been a more-than-delicious piece of cinema trash."
‑ Richard Knight, Windy City Times
"Clearly, the subject matter makes for a sordid Hollywood tale that's still relevant today. Why, then, is this story related with all the lackadaisical tempo of a Mutual of Omaha commercial?"
‑ Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing
"The Last of Robin Hood is relatively harmless. That is also its major flaw, considering the harmful subject matter."
‑ Bill Gibron, PopMatters
"The film becomes a showcase for Kline and Sarandon - and a reminder of how great actors can light up the screen, staying with you even as the rest of the film slips away."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"Since it's impossible to see what the attraction would be, the film's emotional logic fizzles."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
" exculpatory fairy tale"
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"Belongs to a newly active subgenre that we might dub the celebrity bio-episode, to distinguish it from the more conventional biopic..."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"As art, it's considerably shallow, weighted down by thin writing and wan direction. But the film nevertheless holds you in its grip, as it cuts to the heart of how low people will stoop to gain - or maintain - the perks of celebrity."
‑ Al Alexander, The Patriot Ledger
"A character study of an ultimately pathetic man."
‑ Richard Roeper, Richard
"The Last of Robin Hood feels stilted, a chamber piece for the stage rather than a dynamic piece of cinema."
‑ Tirdad Derakhshani, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Movies shouldn't always judge their protagonists, but a little judging might have helped The Last of Robin Hood."
‑ Christian Toto,
"Pointless and creepy."
‑ Matt Pais, RedEye
"A strong trio of leads can't overcome a lackluster script."
‑ Scott Nash, Three Movie Buffs
