This advertisement for Walt Disney’s Story of Robin Hood comes from my own collection of memorabilia from the film. It appeared in the fifteen cent American magazine ‘Colliers’ (originally known as Colliers Weekly (1888-1957) on July 5th 1952, alongside an article on traffic jams and how ‘too many secrets spoil the atom!’
With the heading, ‘the romantic adventure of the year,’ this extremely lively and colourful page describes the movie as: ‘an all live action picture….starring Richard Todd and introducing the exciting new screen personality, Joan Rice. You’ll feel it’s excitement-live its high hearted romance as adventure’s favorite outlaw strikes at tyranny! Only Walt Disney could capture in one great picture such tumultuous fury of exciting action. Whatever your age, Walt Disney’s matchless Robin Hood will rob you of your cares-reward you with a king’s ransom in adventure!'
