The sequence which Conan fights Thoth-Amon/monster in the chamber of mirrors, was influenced by the famous final battle between Lee and Han in Enter the Dragon (1973), in which Lee and Han fought each other in a room full of mirrors, which Lee smashed the mirrors to foil Han's illusions, allowing him to defeat Han. Conan defeats Thoth-Amon/monster by breaking all the mirrors.
Akiro 'The Wizard':
Between the years when the oceans drank Atlantis and the rise of the Sons of Aryas, there was an Age undreamed of, when shining kingdoms lay spread across the world. Hither came Conan, the Cimmerian, sword in hand. It is I, his chronicler, who knows...
(at around 32 mins) When the heroes are 'rowing' toward the castle, Conan is 'rowing' with the rudder, which is clearly not designed for this purpose, and the oars are nowhere in sight. It could be said that rowing with this type of rudder is possible, using a vertical rhythm that ran in parallel with the skiff (boat), however Conan was rowing in perpendicular - from left to right.
UK cinema and video versions were cut by 28 secs to remove horsefalls and shots of a camel being hit on the head. The 2004 Sanctuary DVD had similar cuts (reduced to 19 secs) but received an additional cut to a scene where Conan punches a horse. Both scenes were included in High Fliers UK Blu-ray release.
