Synopsis:
Muscleman Arnold Schwarzenegger brings the comic book hero Conan the Barbarian to life in this action fantasy set during a mythical era known as the Hyborean Age. In a magical land overrun by sorcerers and pagan cults, the Nordic super hunk seeks revenge on Thulsa Doom, the evil leader who murdered his parents and enslaved him as a child.

Notes:
Shot in Technicolor. The "Conan" character was created in 1932 by Robert E. Howard, a pulp fiction writer whose stories were serialized in Weird Tales Magazine. Conan later became a Marvel Comic Book charater.
