To announce his return to England, King Richard (Patrick Holt) has sent a toy, the Little Sarazene, containing a hidden message of the whereabouts of his arrival. to his loyal noblemen. However, the Little Sarazene was stolen, & Moraine (John Stuart), the most loyal of the King's men, knows no other way but to call on infamous outlaw Robin Hood (Don Taylor) for help.

Robin, himself a Royalist, of course happily accepts, & soon he has traced the Little Sarazene down to Belton Castle, which he enters in the guise of a troubadour. & while Alys (Eileen Moore), the lady of the castle, soon falls for Robin's charms, Sir Guy Belton (David King-Wood) & his loyal aide Hubert (Harold Lang) immediately distrust him & try to have him unmasked by an abbot who knows him by sight. But fortunately for Robin, his merry men have replaced the abbot with Friar Tuck (Reginald Beckwith), who soon entertains Sir Belton & company with a bagful of gambling tricks.

It is not until the next day, when Sir Belton has already figured out the secret of the Little Sarazene, that Robin & Tuck are unmasked by evil night Saltire (Douglas Wilmer), & laid into chains.

However, since Alys has already fallen for Robiun anyway, she wastes no time & frees him & the Friar.

& while it doesn't take long for the Friar to be recaptured (& he later ultimately breaks free by teaching his guards strippoker [!]), Robin manages to stay aloof & he moves through the castle unnoticed, trying to find out more about the whereabouts of King Richard's return to England - een if that means beating it out of Hubert. After he has achieved that he sends out Alys with a message to ghis merrie men as to where to expect Richard - only to learn it was all one of Hubert's set-ups to lure Robin's men into a trap ...

In the end though, Robin & his men come to the aide Richard just in time, as he seems to be losing his fight against the men of Saltire & Sir Belton, & - as if you didn't expect it - Robin saves his King. Curiously enough, he does not get his girl in the end (!).


Hammer's first film shot in colour, & one of Hammer's first costume dramas is a cheaply done swashbuckler that doesn't offer much in terms of originality, let alone inventiveness. On the other hand however it is an entertaining little film if you haven't set any high expectations.
