Not to mention Dick Gautier. Some of the myriad hoods, then, I suppose.

In the early 1960s there was a Robin Hood TV series starring Richard Greene.

Kaspar Brandner, a Bavarian farmer who made Death drunk with cherry brandy, talked him into playing cards, cheated (the pic shows him pulling a card from his sleeve while in the background Death has a look at his cards) and thus won 18 years additional lifespan
