Show them the courage of Allah!
When Robin begins training the outlaws, we see an arrowhead being cast, outdoors in a small mould. Next, we see an iron/steel arrowhead being shaped on a stone. Iron or steel could not be cast, outdoors and in the small quantity as shown, due to the heat needed. The metal shown can only be pewter, lead or tin. To produce arrowheads in those conditions, a friendly blacksmith would beat out a suitably thin piece of waste metal, chop pieces off, then, others could file or rub them to shape and sharpness.
At the end of the credits: In fond memory of Egil Woxholt
For many years, the UK version had censorship issues in order to maintain a PG rating. The cinema version was cut by 14 secs with edits made to the opening scene and the single use of the F-word towards the end of the film. The 1991 & 1995 video versions lost a further 18 secs of footage, which completely removed any trace of the hand amputation scene and made additional cuts to other scenes of language, violence and sexual threat - owing to complaints made to the BBFC from parents. The 2003 Extended Edition release saw many of the cuts waived though 28 secs remained edited; namely part of the hand amputation scene, the stabbing of Gisbourne, shots of the Sheriff forcing Marian's legs apart during the assault, and the climactic hanging sequence. The cuts were finally waved in 2009 after an upgrade to a 12 rating for the UK Blu-ray.
