The Story of Robin Hood 1952 – on set at Denham

The Story of Robin Hood 1952 - Walt Disney

This is a publicity still with Richard Todd and James Robertson Justice from around June 11th 1951 – the film The Story of Robin Hood and His Merrie Men was released in 1952.    As we all know this was a Walt Disney picture and one he took a great deal of interest in. He did in fact come over during the summer of 1951 to England and spent some time at Denham Film Studios and at Burnham Beeches where some of the out door action was filmed.

This picture was a studio set piece and does not feature in the film as the quarter staff fight takes place over a wooden bridge in Sherwood Forest – but actually this was indeed another beautiful studio set designed and constructed by Carmen Dillon whose work on this film was exceptional.     Robin-and-Little-John On the Bridge
