Guest: James Deutsch, Curator, Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage, Professorial Lecturer in American Studies, George Washington University There's a new action flick out -- another rendition of folklore hero Robin Hood. Hollywood has done a lot of Robin Hood retellings. Frank Sinatra, Sean Connery, Kevin Costner, and Russell Crowe have all played the title role in past adaptations, and there are several more reboots in the works. Something keeps luring Hollywood back to the folklore hero again and again.
