Oh I agree about confusing TV with stories in books with real life.
I got worried about Robin Hood in the 1950s on TV, because I knew he'd lived about 1400 and here he was on TV!

I always wondered how Robin Hood and his merry men never got dirty, because when *I* played in the woods, I got VERY dirty! LOL! And I had such a crush on Errol Flynn, even at whatever tender age I was then.

I used to think he looked like Richard Greene!! My sister (14 years older than me) had an old Robin Hood book which had as its artwork stills from the Errol Flynn film. I knew it wasnt the real Robin because it wasnt Richard Greene !!

Incidentally my husband grew up near Nottingham and can remember being able to climb inside major oak (the tree reputed to be where RH's arrow fell). Now it is unfortunately fenced off.

Oh, yes, why do we have to grow up & have our illusions shattered...not exactly relevant but when I was 13 i had a crush on Dean Martin. How sad is that.

When I was little my first crush was on Roy Rogers...

However what I was going to say was that for years I had a crush on Robert Mitchum.

I blame my sister - she is 14 years my senior and used to like him. As an under-five I can also remember her swooning to Frankie Vaughn - so of course I did too. But I didn't really like him. She used to listen to music with her eyes shut and say 'I'm gone'. I again copied her and was annoyed when Dad said 'Our Anne's asleep!'!!

Robert Horton was another crush of ours!!

Hahaha, if I don't watch it I'm going to have it bad for a young James Stewart. This is what I get for taking my film teacher's recommendations.

Linda, that by no means is sad. Dino was attractive in his day.

My first crush? Mighty Mouse. I was three. I loved his powerful tenor voice singing out, "Here I come to save the daaaaaaay!"

My first crush on a human celebrity was Davy Jones, I think. I was 8 years old then.

I'm pretty boy crazy, I guess. I've had crushes on so many people I've lost count.

Who was Richard Greene? I used to know someone of that name, but it can't be the same one, lol.

He played Robin Hood on TV in the 1950s.

Here's the REAL Robin Hood hahaha !!



My fave Monkee was Mike Nesmith - I was thrilled to see them at Wembley (not the football stadium) when I was about 13.

Mr. Greene's face rings a bell, but faintly. It may come to me later; my mind works kind of slowly on things it hasn't thought about in a long time. The guy who plays Friar Tuck definitely looks familiar. Maybe I saw the old series in syndication? Dunno.
Re: Palin's Diaries by peripatetically on 16 March 2008 12:47am
Oh those Richard Greene films were good. But I still prefer Errol Flynn as Robin Hood. BTW, Ricahrd Greene was handsome, thin and had dark hair. He was the original film Robin Hood, I do believe.
