Ah, the glorious story of Robin Hood, told so many times in literature, song, and film.  And here’s yet another interpretation, another in our series of “In Theaters Now” discussions.  Starring Taron Egerton, Jamie Foxx and a bunch of other unfortunates, I mean actors.  So does this one earn a place in the canon? Will it make us forget such classics portrayals as those of Errol Flynn, Patrick Bergen, Bugs Bunny, and Daffy Duck? Give a listen and find out!

  1. FYI – Eve Hewson is the daughter of Bono of U2 (his real name is Paul Hewson).

    I couldn’t find a revamp of West Side Story, but I did see a biopic of Leonard Bernstein called, amazingly enough, Bernstein. It’s being produced by Spielberg, written, directed & starring Bradley Cooper.

    1. Can’t remember where I saw the news story about West Side, but it was most notable for having Rita Moreno in it. Maybe it’ll just go away. Didn’t know all about Eve (wink), but that’s good to know. Also good to know she’s not trying to play off daddy’s name. She might end up being a fine actor. This movie is no gauge of that. Thanks for listening!
