Thanks very much, Publius! "The Adventures of Robin Hood" is one of my all time faves. As it happens, we never had a color TV when I was growing up - I didn't realize until I was an adult that it was filmed in color. Same story with "The Wizard of Oz."
Nos genuflectitur ad non princeps sed Princeps Pacem!
Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

Now here's a sweet one. When George Gershwin was hired to write the music for "Shall We Dance", Pandro Berman, the producer, told Gershwin he didn't need to bother with the musical numbers that linked the scenes. They would be handed to a lesser composer.
"But I want to write those interludes myself," Gershwin said to Berman. "I don't wanr them handed to a lesser composer."
And so here is a classic Gershwin interlude titled "Walking the Dog" which he uses as a prelude to "Beginner's Luck".
