The Adventures of Robin Hood (Blu-Ray) in August

Almost two years after its HD-DVD version release, **Warner** has announced an August 26th release date for the Blu-Ray debut of The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938). A complete list of Bonus Features isn't available, but below we've listed the HD-DVD Bonus Features that Warner will presumably carry over to this release. It will retail for $28.99, but is available at for only $23.99. Details below.

Dashing Errol Flynn triumphs in this lavish, fast-paced version of the Robin Hood legend, a winner of three Academy Awards in ravishing Technicolor. Doing many stunts himself, Flynn is at his athletic, romantic best in a role originally intended for James Cagney. Olivia de Havilland (as Maid Marian), consummate screen villains Basil Rathbone and Claude Rains and a boisterous who’s who of character actors co-star. Welcome to Sherwood!
