Conan leads a ragtag group of adventurers on a quest for a princess.
The part of Malak was originally assigned to David L. Lander. Due to both his deteriorating health from the onset of Multiple Sclerosis, and difficulties with the director, Lander was let go, and the part was recast with Tracey Walter.
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 26 mins) When Zula is fighting Bombaata, she leaps from the saddle and throws herself on him, knocking his head-circlet off from the impact of collision. In the very next shot, Bombaata's circlet is back on his head as he struggles with Zula.
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.
