This set also includes two posters – one for each movie, high quality postcards and a full color book with written essays about the productions.
Conan the Barbarian stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, James Earl Jones, Max von Sydow and Sandahl Bergman. This sword and sandal fantasy helped push Arnold Schwarzenegger into a star in Hollywood. Conan the Barbarian was directed by John Milius and is based off of written works by Robert E. Howard.
