Plot Outline: The epic tale of child sold into slavery who grows into a man who seeks revenge against the warlord who massacred his tribe.
Plot: A barbarian trained in the arts of war joins with thieves in a quest to solve the riddle of steel and find the sorcerer responsible for the genocide of his people in this faithful adaptation of Robert E. Howard's sword and sorcery adventures. This film briefly sparked a wave of fantasy films including the sequel, Conan the Destroyer, in the early 80s.
Movie Quotes: King Osric: There comes a time, thief, when the jewels cease to sparkle, when the gold loses its luster, when the throne room becomes a prison, and all that is left is a father's love for his child.
Crazy Credits: We know about 1 Crazy Credits. One of them reads:
“A SPECIAL THANKS TO ALFREDO”
Goofs: We know about 16 goofs. Here comes one of them:
Continuity: Subotai slashes a guard across the back three times, but there is no blood.
Trivia: There are 29 entries in the trivia list – like these:
- Although Conan and Valeria are shown together frequently throughout the movie, he only speaks five words to her in the entire film – and they're all in the first thirty seconds after they meet: “You're not a guard”, and “No”.
- Conan's response to the Mongol General is an abbreviation of a real quote attributed to Gengis Khan: “The greatest pleasure is to vanquish your enemies and chase them before you, to rob them of their wealth and see those dear to them bathed in tears, to ride their horses and clasp to your bosom their wives and daughters.”
- Conan's opinion of what is best in life is not all that links him to Genghis Khan. Subotai (or Subedei Baghadur) was also the name of Great Khan's general. The fact that Conan is not only chased but to some extent orphaned by dogs also recalls Genghis Khan's well-documented fear of that particular animal. Finally, the writers' preoccupation with steel seems oddly coincidental, given that Genghis Khan's birthname, Temujin, is frequently translated as “finest steel.”
