Robin Hood is a 1922 adventure film starring Douglas Fairbanks and Wallace Beery. It was the first motion picture ever to have a Hollywood premiere, held at Grauman’s Egyptian Theatre on October 18, 1922. Robin Hood was one of the most expensive films of the 1920s, with a budget estimated at approximately $1 million. This smash hit earned rave reviews and was the inspiration for other Robin Hood films produced by Hollywood.
