Robin and Marian

1976, PG, 106 min. Directed by Richard Lester. Starring Audrey Hepburn, Sean Connery, Robert Shaw, Richard Harris, Nicol Williamson, Denholm Elliott, Ian Holm.

REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Thu., July 26, 2001

Frequently underrated, Robin and Marian is a revisionist telling of the familiar tale with the famous couple seen in middle age and abundantly self-aware. If nothing else, the performances of Connery and Hepburn are welcome delights.

A Hard Day's Night
This is the kind of timeless artifact that, decades after its making, still hits the senses like a burst of fresh air. Where a pop star like Elvis churned out silly movies with phony plots, props, and pretense, the Beatles launched into movies playing hyperbolic versions of themselves and their lives of newfound celebrity.
