Among the many fine examples of film scores by Erich Wolfgang Korngold (1897-1957), the score for The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938) stands out the most. Winner of the Academy Award(TM) for best dramatic score in 1938, it is seen by many as the archetypal accompaniment to a Warner Brothers swashbuckler, and it established Korngold as one of the leading exponents of film score composition at a formative point in its history. In Erich Wolfgang Korngold's The Adventures of Robin Hood: A Film Score Guide, author Ben Winters uses manuscript and archival research to challenge preconceived notions about the score's composer and its authorship. In the first two chapters, Winters examines Korngold's career on its own and in relation to the film, including his background in composing concert music and opera, his film scoring techniques, and his engagement with the Hollywood studio system. Chapter three focuses on the Robin Hood film while placing Korngold's music in a larger framework. It examines the film's treatment of the Robin Hood legend, its historical and critical contexts, and its place within the swashbuckler genre and the studio's anti-fascist agenda. While looking closely at the composer's work on this score, chapter four shows sources Korngold used, the music's production process, and the changes the score had undergone. The book concludes with a thematic analysis and reading of the score, identifying the various musical 'voices' that the listener weaves together as he or she experiences the film. This detailed consideration of Korngold's masterpiece will be continually turned to by film and music scholars alike.

Robin Hood is a lovable outlaw, who along with his band of Merry Men, become famous for their frequent escapades with friends and foes alike. He is constantly at odds with authority, specifically the Sheriff of Nottingham, who's committed to making him pay for his crimes. After a clash with locals, Robin Hood becomes a wanted man evading the efforts the nefarious Sheriff of Nottingham. Despite many attempts, the infamous bandit manages to avoid capture and enlist multiple Merry Men, including Little John, Friar Tuck and Allan a Dale. Throughout his travels, Robin uses his superior archery skills to protect himself and others from potential threats. With his charm and wit, he navigates a series of challenges leading to the ultimate absolution. Pyle's retelling enforces the narrative of an English outlaw who becomes a beloved hero. He refrains from early characterization that portrayed Robin Hood as a self-serving thief with few redeeming qualities. By having a moral compass, the author made him palatable to a broader audience, particularly children. The book was an overwhelming success and inspired multiple adaptions including television and feature films. With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood is both modern and readable.
