"Conan the Barbarian"

Screenplay | Script

Written By: John Milius

Milius' 3rd Draft | UNDATED

May 14, 1982 | Universal Pictures

Through the history of mankind, the times that are most recorded in mythology and song are those of great deeds and fantastic adventures. Such a time was the Hyborean Age. Such a tale is the story of CONAN THE BARBARIAN. Cimmerian Conan (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is captured as a child after his parents' savage murder by raiding Vanir. Thulsa Doom (James Earl Jones), head also of the malignant snake-cult of Set, is the Vanir leader.

Be careful... a wealthy man has no friends.

pg.52 : scene 206

Fifteen years of agony, first chained to the Wheel of Pain grinding grain and then enslaved as a Pit Fighter, forge a magnificent body and indomitable spirit. Freed miraculously one day by his owner, Conan, with his companions Subotai the Mongol (Gerry Lopez) and Valeria, Queen of Thieves (Sandahl Bergman), sets forth upon a quest. Conan must learn "the riddle of steel" his father prophesied, confer ultimate power and to kill the arch-villain Thulsa Doom.
