Little John (Archie Duncan) is a mild-mannered slave, but also a giant of a man, so when his master (John Rutland) goes too far in humiliating him, he single-handedly picks him up and sits him down on a high windowledge. His master of course fumes with anger, so John has to make a getaway - but eventually he runs into soldiers who are after him. But these soldiers think they are smart, and instead of arresting the giant, they offer him his freedom should he bring them one of Robin Hood's merry men.

Having no alternative, John accepts the offer.

In Sherwood Forest, John bumps into Robin Hood (Richard Greene) himself, and thinking only of his promised freedom, he challenges Robin to a pole-fighting duel - which john wins. Then he makes friends with Robin and with promises of inviting him to an ale, he lures him to a certain tavern, where the soldiers are waiting. Robin agrees, but has long smelled the trap ...

When they are almost there, John has second thoughts and tries to dissuade Robin from visiting the tavern, but now Robin pushes on - and quite on purpose walks into the trap. But now it seems the soldiers are no longer content to have one of the merry men, even if it is Robin, they also want to arrest John, the runaway slave - which is when John's raw strength comes into play when he overcomes ll the soldiers pretty much single-handedly. When Robin's merry men arrive, all the soldiers are already done for ...

And despite his treachery, Robin offers John to join his merry men, as now he has seen how treacherous the other side can be ...

 

It's no masterpiece of course, just a rather cheaply produced and stagely directed (bt well-played) television series, but on the other hand, this show explores the Little John character in greater detail than usual in Robin Hood adaptations, giving him a certain ambiguity normally totally lost where the character is reduced to a bit of polefighting (a scene that here rather fails to impress).
