Robin and the 7 Hoods

Part of The Films of Frank Sinatra
Friday, September 2, 2011, 7:00 p.m.

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.
