Conan the Destroyer is the ideal sword and sorcery picture. Plot [by Roy Thomas and Gerry Conway] is appropriately elemental. Conan is recruited by sexy queen Sarah Douglas to accompany teenage princess Olivia D’Abo to a distant castle, wherein lies a gem that will supposedly unleash many secret powers.

Unbeknownst to Conan, Douglas has instructed her henchman Wilt Chamberlain to kill the muscleman once the mission is accomplished, and to deliver D’Abo back home with her virginity intact so that she can be properly sacrificed. Along the way, group also picks up fiery warrioress Grace Jones.

As Conan, Arnold Schwarzenegger seems more animated and much funnier under Fleischer’s direction than he did under John Milius’ in the original – he even has an amusing drunk scene. Jones just about runs off with the picture. Coming on like a full-fledged star from her very first scene, singer throws herself into her wild woman role with complete abandon.
