The Adventures of Robin Hood Season 1 Episode 24: Will Scarlet

A new face around Nottingham is causing a stir with the outlaws and the Sheriff. His zeal and tenacity is getting him in trouble everywhere it seems. When his troubles involved the Sheriff’s niece, he became an outlaw himself, seeking help from the other outlaws. He may not join the team but he is privy to some very important information and because of that he is certain the sheriff is out to kill him.

Personal Synopsis

A good episode introducing the character Will Scarlet, being played by the great Ronald Howard.This womanizer has gotten in trouble and needs some help to get out, naturally Robin Hood is a good option. The acting is noticeably good especially from Howard. Sadly, Ronald would not stay with the role of Will Scarlet instead would go off to be a star in another favourite of mine, a Sherlock Holmes TV series.
