Returning from the cruzades, Robin Hood (Lex Barker) has been kidnapped by pirates led by Guercio (Walter Barnes), who want to sell him to his father for ransom ... but right off the British coast, the pirates' ship gets into a storm that wrecks it and everybody has to abandon ship ... which makes Robin Hood a free man, and very close to his home castle too.

However, back home Robin has to find out that in his absence his father was murdered, and his father's former majordomo Jonathan Brooks (Mario Scaccia) is the new ruler of Sherwood Castle ... and not only that, he also plans to marry Robin's childhood sweetheart Kareen (Jackie Lane). Naturally, Robin can't accept that, but he finds out that all his former friends have either been killed or imprisoned ... so he turns to the pirates and asks them for help, promising them a King's ransom if they help him drive Brooks out of Sherwood.

First Robin and the pirates free Robin's friends from the castle's dungeons and even manage to take Kareen with them ... but in the meantime, Brooks' daughter Lisbeth (Rosanna Rory) has made some plans of her own which involve marrying Robin and sending Kareen to the gallows - and before long she has brought Kareen back to her father's castle and has the gallows prepared, while the pirates refuse to further help Robin. Left only with a handful of friends, Robin decides to dismiss them and make a desperate rescue attempt all by himself ... even though it's bloody obvious the execution of Kareen is just a trick by Brooks to finally capture Robin ... and it works, too.

However, by the time Robin himself is led to the gallows, Robin's friends have decided to start a riot among the citizens of Sherwood, and the pirates have had second thoughts about helping Robin, and now they are all for it ... and of course, everything ends happily.


Rather typical Italian adventure movie from that era: It's naive to the hilt, childish even, neither acting nor fight scenes are comparable to American swashbucklers from about 25 years earlier, and its obviously made ont he cheap ... but great historical sets and natural landscapes outbalance the film's cheapness, and as a schoolboy's fantasy, the film works just fine - if of course only if you can accept its story without second thoughts ...
