The Adventures of Robin Hood
This clever, dashing, British-made series, which aired in the U.S. on CBS, would appeal to Indys inner child. The dimple-chinned Richard Greene certainly looked good in tights and was mighty with his bow and arrow as the Sherwood Forest resident who robbed from the rich to give to the poor. Among the series directors was Lindsay Anderson, who went on to make such films as This Sporting Life and If. The show also hired several blacklisted writers who wrote under assumed names, including Ring Lardner Jr. and Waldo Salt.
