A READER'S GUIDE TO SWORD & SORCERY

FILMS & TELEVISION




In 1982, Conan was brought to the big screen in a so-so film featuring Arnold Schwartzenegger. The success of Conan the Barbarian spawned a plethora of bad S&S films. I will make no comment on individual films but state none was better than average and most were far less well-done.
