Robin And The 7 Hoods
Robin and the 7 Hoods mirthfully gives the Robin Hood legend a Depression-era, mobtown Chicago setting. There, North Side boss Robbo (Frank Sinatra) hopes to get a leg up in his power struggle with rival racketeer Guy Gisborne (Peter Falk). Robbo sets himself up as a latter-day Robin Hood with philanthropic fronts enabling him to scam the rich, take his cut and then give to the poor.
Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., Bing Crosby and Barbara Rush join in the giddy, gangsterish fun. And the jazzy Sammy Cahn/ James Van Heusen score (including Sinatra's classic "My Kind of Town") is the perfect match for this all-star cast. Chicago will be your kind of town, when you share the music and merriment of Robin and the 7 Hoods.
