The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938)
    by Jon Osborne, Miss Liberty's Guide to Film and Video, 2001
An evil prince has just come to power and he's raising taxes to astronomical levels, enslaving his subjects, and abusing his authority in every way. ... The antitax aspect of this film is very satisfying, as is the general dramatization of rebellion against a corrupt government. ... It's a somewhat mixed political bag ... In any case, this film is a pleasure to watch.
