WATCH: Kevin Kline as Errol Flynn Woos '50s Glam Dakota Fanning in 'The Last of Robin Hood' Trailer

Swashbuckling screen icon Errol Flynn, who made his way from Australia to Hollywood in the 1930s, comes to life in “The Last of Robin Hood,” a snapshot of the 1950s winter of his career — when he infamously pursued teenager Bevery Aadland. It stars Kevin Kline, Dakota Fanning and Susan Sarandon. Watch the glamorously saucy trailer below.

This latest behind-the-scenes Hollywood flick (See  “Hitchcock,” “My Week with Marilyn”) from writers/directors Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland (“Quinceanera”) bowed at Toronto last Fall. While critics were not in love with the film — with Variety citing that it “defangs” the “wild and crazy” source material” — other critics, such as Rex Reed per the trailer, admire Kline’s “king-size” performance as the illusive screen icon.

Samuel Goldwyn brings the film to US theaters on August 29.
