Silent films are never really silent. They speak through literal communication, as when frames of dialogue or plot detail pop up on the screen, and, of course, through even the slightest changes on an actor's face. They also speak through music, a key ingredient since the glory days of silent movies in the early 20th century. Scores were composed to complement each scene, underline each emotion. Back in the day, these scores were performed live — by orchestras in the grandest movie palaces, more commonly by an organist or pianist — as the films were shown.

ROBIN HOOD: PRINCE OF THIEVESWarner Home Video$24.95There are more things wrong than right with this latest film version of the Robin Hood legend, but that didn't stop summer audiences from lining up at movies theaters -- they were happy, it seems, just to feast their eyes on Kevin Costner again.Mr. Costner is just plain uneasy in the title role -- a fact that many will find difficult to ignore from the first scene on. A director with more savvy than Kevin Reynolds might have gone with Mr. Costner's unease and awkwardness, somehow turning it into the fuel that powers Robin's story and his fate.

If there was a quintessential Robin Hood in the movies, it had to be Errol Flynn, who did ''The Adventures of Robin Hood'' in 1938 with Olivia De Havilland as Maid Marian and Basil Rathbone as the evil Sir Guy Gisbourne. Claude Rains was Prince John.Flynn, who died in 1959 at the age of 50, would never repeat the success he enjoyed as the bandit of Sherwood Forest. That was his peak movie, and the film, directed by Michael Curtiz and William Keighley and done in color, plays as well today as it did 53 years ago.The pace is fast, the action exciting, and the score, by Erich Wolfgang Korngold, is rich and appropriate.

THE TRAILERS did not mislead us. ''Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves'' is a thoroughly exciting film, one that is well-paced and well-staged. Its trouble is that it is really two films in one. Part of it is action with occasional comedy. The other part is almost camp.Alan Rickman is responsible for the camp. He plays the Sheriff of Nottingham, who takes over the country while King Richard is off to the Crusades.As the sheriff, Rickman is almost low comedy. His footage is exceptionally funny, but it doesn't necessarily go with the rest of the film.

THE THING I want to make clear is that this is not an indictment of Kevin Costner, who happens to be a fine (if uneven) actor and not a bad fellow, once you get past his reported mood swings.For the record, I like Kevin Costner -- even though everywhere you go it's Kevin Costner this and Kevin Costner that and he's on the cover of this magazine and doing that talk show and generally lending a whole new meaning to the term "overexposed."But I don't begrudge him his successes. His movies have donwell.

Here are your choices for a Halloween costume this year: fantasy or reality, movie or television, Sherwood Forest or Capitol Hill.Which means lots of Robin Hoods and Maid Marians may run into some Clarence Thomases and Anita Hills at the same parties, as Halloween celebrants take their costume cues from the hottest shows to play on movie and television screens this year.Several Baltimore-area costume stores have received queries about masks, wigs, outfits or accessories to duplicate the look of Mr. Thomas, the newest Supreme Court justice, and Ms. Hill, the woman who nearly cost him that seat by accusing him of sexual harassment.

MOVIESA good Hood "Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves" is two films in one, and both are enjoyable. One part of the movie is action with a -- of comedy; the other is almost camp. Kevin Costner is the bandit of Sherwood Forest, and Alan Rickman is the Sheriff of Nottingham. Rickman is very funny as the sheriff, but his part of the film is out of sync with the rest. Not that it matters. Both parts make an exciting whole. Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio is Maid Marian. (If you want to compare this "Robin Hood" with the 1938 version done by Errol Flynn, it begins today at the Senator.

A STRANGE-LOOKING COLLECTION OF folks descended on Dave & Buster's at Arundel Mills. But this was intentional strangeness, for the Goodwill Industries of the Chesapeake's "Gridiron Halloween" celebration earlier this month. A quick scan of the place showed Robin Hood, Maid Marian, a pair of penguins, "Britney Spears," "Lindsay Lohan," and a handful of cowboys, witches and hippies. And then there were the flapper perusing the poolroom, the clown in the bowling alley, and the skeleton in the buffet line.
