I'm curious how The Adventures of Robin Hood qualifies as SF/fantasy. I know there are some interpretations of the Robin Hood legend with supernatural elements, but I'm pretty sure the Errol Flynn version isn't one of them. Is it just that Robin Hood was sort of a prototype superhero (and the person Robin, the Boy Wonder, was named for), and superheroes are counted as genre fiction? Or is it just "It's not really SF/fantasy but it might interest the same audience so I'll mention it here"?
