STARRING: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Grace Jones, Wilt Chamberlain, Mako, Tracey Walter, Sarah Douglas, Olivia d'Abo

1984, 103 Minutes, Directed by: Richard Fleischer

Description: Conan is assigned by a duplicitous queen (Sarah Douglas) to escort a virgin princess (Olivia d'Abo) on a treacherous trek to a crystal palace where they will retrieve a priceless gemstone. Basketball champ and self-described Lothario Wilt Chamberlain plays Bombaata, a warrior sent on a secret mission to kill Conan, and the androgynous Grace Jones plays Zula, a wild woman who becomes Conan's loyal ally.

Conan the Barbarian returns repackaged as Conan Your Friendly Neighborhood Barbarian. Wholesome campy family entertainment with none of the doom and gloom (not to mention violence and sex) of the first movie. Ho-hum . . .
