We have just discussed about Derann and how Derann edited it.

I knew there are at least 3 companies released Robin Hood and all were three parter, i.e Derann, UFA and Techno:







Are they the same film?

If so what about the edit, did they also have the same cut?

I know that Techno distributed a film called "Robin Hood the Infallible Bowman" which was a different film, so probably that, not the same as Derann. Derann bought up a lot of them when Techno closed and marketed differently.

Avoid "Robin Hood: The Infallible Bowman" at all costs. It is a boring, very letterboxed black and white print of an unexciting film made in the early 1970's that had a different original title. Most prints you see offered for sale are black and white and I have never seen a colour version, but I doubt that the luxury of colour could improve this nonsense. It has rotten dubbing which is not improved by the sound synch issues prevalent with Techno Film titles. It is not worth wasting about 45 minutes of your life on this rubbish.

Robin Hood The Infallible Bowman truly awful. I did see a colour print advertised so they do exist. Ringo The Lone Cowboy is another Techno badly dubbed terrible print.
