Robin and the 7 Hoods
Dir. Gordon Douglas. 1964, 123 mins.
Gangland Chicago (“My Kind of Town”) becomes Sherwood Forest and the Rat Pack are the Merry Men in this winning musical reimagining of Robin Hood, a must see if just for Sammy Davis, Jr.’s tap-dancing through a gang war to “Bang, Bang.” Sinatra earns his title as the Prince of Thieves when his gangster’s honor leads him to donate the payment for a hit he didn’t commit to an orphanage.
Tickets: If visiting the Museum after 4:00 p.m., tickets to Friday evening screenings are $12 ($9 for senior citizens and students). Otherwise screening is free with Museum admission.
