A rather disappointing effort considering all the talent involved . Cushing's performance as the Sheriff of Nottingham is the best thing about the film but other than that it is all rather laboured and uninspired . Not a complete disaster by any means but no great shakes either . The later 'A Challenge for Robin Hood' is actually a lot more fun .
