  • Question: Speaking of Warner Bros.; - who did the executive pinheads at the studio originally choose to play Robin Hood in their 1938 classic instead of Errol Flynn? – and while you are thinking...
 
  • Answer: If it can be believed, it appears from documents at the University of Southern California Warner Bros. intended to have James (Jimmy) Cagney play Robin Hood in their 1938 classic. Wisely, he turned the role down suggesting they might want to consider somebody taller.
