Synopsis

In town, an elder auctions off three splintered arrows for charity. Robin Hood used them to best the Sheriff, but Prince John demands the story because "Robin Hood is dead". Flashbacks show how Robin loosed a dam spillway onto attackers, stopped up a chimney, and crossed a "moat" of wild boars. How can it be true? Because the "elder" is Robin in disguise, as he vanishes into the trees laughing!
