FANTASY IN ROMANCE, April 21, 2013

FANTASY IN ROMANCE, March 13th, 1194

I’ve invited Sir Robert of Loxley as a guest blogger today. He’s accomplished in swordplay, and considered the deadliest archer in all of England and is a Saxon Knight loyal to the good King Richard.

RW: How did you earn your spurs and become a knight at such a young age?

Sir Robert: With many away on Crusade, Sir Guy and I were recruited by Sir William Marshall, Defender of the Realm, in the King’s absence and taught well, indeed.

RW: How is it to practice with Sir Guy?

Sir Robert: But for a mere trifle, the boy now man aggravates me. He seeks Lady Marian’s hand. I’ll have none of this. If he persists, I’ll run him through.

RW: But isn’t Lady Marian about Prince John’s business these days, anno Domini 1194?

Sir Robert: The lady is but days away from becoming mine forever. She must simply thread a needle and find me in Sherwood.

RW: You have a home in the shire, why Sherwood?

Sir Robert: Marian is both my best friend and my eternal flame. Our friendship was forged in Sherwood when we were boy and girl. She shall renew our love by recalling happier times with me at our secret place.

RW: But the forest is overrun by wolves.

Sir Robert: Do you, sir, suggest Marian cannot find a way to me? Are we not fated? I am not happy with your tone. Remember this, scribe. The wolves of Sherwood are my friends and will treat the Lady properly.

I had to end the interview at this point, because Sir Robert (later known as Robin Hood) was sharpening his sword and tongue. I thought it best to mount my stead and visit Will Scarlet for a calmer and merrier interview.

Off, Geneviere. To Nottingham make thy way.

Witness one of the greatest kisses and love stories ever presented on the silver screen.
Olivia De Havilland and Errol Flynn declare their love in The Adventures of Robin Hood 1938. The end of this YouTube snipet is spliced badly and then cut. It is picked up just before the splice in the trailer below. For those in a rush, you can move the raster in the second scene until you see the love scene and then back off a tad and release the mouse.
This is one of my top ten movies.
