The Adventures of Robin Hood Season 1 Episode 23: Ladies of Sherwood

A judgement of hanging was given out to a villager who instead of paying taxes gave the money to funding King Richards crusade. To avoid a further embarrassment of losing another prisoner to Robin Hood, the Sheriff restricts entrance into the city to only women. This new challenge will be only one of many as they try to free the villager.
