Filming of The Story of Robin Hood at Denham

I have purchased these TWO pictures from the filming of The Story of Robin Hood and His Merrie Men  – the one immediately below – and the third one down showing Walt Disney talking to Richard Todd and Elton Hayes.

Quite honestly I am thrilled with them – or more so really with ONE of them.

That is the Studio scene BELOW at Denham Film Studios showing the filming towards the end of the Picture,  in Robin Hood’s Camp –  this is the original photograph and absolutely crystal clear  whereas I have previously seen this one in a smaller less clear version.


I think this scene would be filmed at the end of July 1951  – and I have a feeling that I would be on  holiday with my Mother and Dad and Brothers in St.Albans at  that time – so as a small boy would have been passing the Denham Studios at the very moment this scene was filmed.

Hard to imagine that the Camp above is a Studio Set – on a scale that could only have been done at Denham at that time.

Below: More pictures from the making of the film :-
