    How about Burt Reynolds in Deliverence?  No ?  Too over the top ?

    Woody Strode as Jake Sharp in Richard Brook’s classic western, The Professionals.

    • Genevap123

      I agree on Woody Strode in the Professionals.

  • W Mcwhorter

    How about Lew Archer of Spade & Archer?

  • W Mcwhorter

    Or maybe it was Miles (where did I get Lew?).

  • Tom

    What about Winona Ryder in “The Age of Innocence,” or Gwynneth Paltrow in “Emma?”

    I agreed with Plarson on Woody Strode in the Professionals, but I also remember Jack Hawkins in The Black Rose with Tyrone Power.  This was memorable because in an archery match against the Mongolians (I think), he did not know that he was shooting for his life.  He was so full of over confidence he had the target moved a ridiculous distance back, but still made the shot.

    In real life Howard Hill was actually an archer and played the Captain of the Archers in Robin Hood against Errol Flynn. I agree with Paul that he was the best archer I ever saw.  When I was about 10 or so he came and did a demonstration for an archery league I was in and actually hit a dime that was tossed in the air !
    As far as this list I haven’t seen many of these but Rambo was always fun to watch.

    I had to go with Legolas! Lord of the Rings?! I had to! The Samurai was taugh to pass up, though. Centuries of focused training? Handed down like that? Hard to beat that. Trouble is, I grew up reading the comics with The Avengers, Green Arrow.

    Genghis Khan: To the Ends of the Earth-First–it’s a phenomenal hidden jewel of a film all throughout.-In this foreign Japanese film there is a scene wherein the Mongols are supposedly “retreating.”  However, this breathtaking scene portrays an example of the Khan’s genius military strategies using archery.  
    Let me describe: The enemy impulsively chases the “retreating” Khan-Mongol horsemen when suddenly these exquisitely costumed horsemen bend all the way back on their galloping horses with their bows and, with stunning athletic and horseman skill, fire their arrows at the enemy that is foolishly pursuing them and these Mongol archers blow them away. NO SPECIAL EFFECTS–these guys trained for this!
    Archery on galloping horses–Robin Hood had nothing on these guys! (and Adventures of Robin Hood is a favorite movie of mine).  This was the real deal.  I couldn’t believe what I saw; It was art.
    Great movie–check it out.

    Tarzan.  Legolas, Rambo and Katayama are great runner-ups.

  • Ajabrams134

    You forgot Corliss Archer!!!

  • Pamela Maschek

    Errol Flynn, hands down as Robin Hood.

    • Wayne P.

      Great choice, but he doesnt count since the category voted on is non-Robin Hood movies!

  • Old Politico

    Bianca Stratford (Larisa Oleynik) in 10 Things I Hate About  You when she shoots Coach Chapin (David Leisure). Not great marksmanship, but very funny.
