Richard Todd and Rupert Evans rehearsing for action shots for The Story of Robin Hood 1952 – Walt Disney – in the summer of 1951. The film was released here in England in 1952.
If you look closely at the picture on the right – at the very back of the photograph, I reckon that is James Robertson Justice – who plays Little John in the film – seen chatting to someone who I think could be Walt Disney himself. He came over that summer and appeared a number of times on the set both at Denham and Burnham Beeches.
These pictures were taken at Denham Film Studios – I reckon at the rear of the studio where it slopes down to the River Colne.
Rupert Evans was an expert swordsman and as such had been drafted in to train the actors when necessary – which in this film would have been quite often I guess.
