Miss Robin Hood is a 1952 British film directed by John Guillermin. It falls neatly within the genre of post-war British fantasy, and there are strong correlations with a number of films within this genre such as e.g. Passport to Pimlico, not the least being the appearance of Dame Margaret Rutherford in both.

The writer, Wrigley (played by Richard Hearne) creates a comic strip character called Miss Robin Hood for a large newspaper. As the name suggests, the character is female, and is a latterday working of the Robin Hood story in which the heroine robs banks with the assistance of a gang of teenage girls and then redistributes the wealth.

Unfortunately, the cartoon series is dropped, and Wrigley departs. However, Miss Honey (Margaret Rutherford), typecast as ever as an eccentric old lady, who operates a home for the orphans of London in Hampstead, recruits Wrigley to engage in a little light safebreaking, on the tenuous basis of having written Miss Robin Hood. Difficulties ensue as Scotland Yard become involved.

The cast list reads like a Who's Who of British screen comedy of the time; other actors involved include Dora Bryan, James Robertson Justice, Peter Jones, Sid James, Reg Varney, Kenneth Connor and Michael Medwin.
