** John Milieus has stated that he always wanted to make a Viking movie. Given the Viking imagery all over this film, it is safe to say that he was making a Viking film first and a Conan film second.

The film put [[FriedrichNietzsche Nietzschean philosophy]] together with an epic tale of revenge. While it wasn't very accurate to the original Creator/RobertEHoward [[PulpFiction pulp]] stories, hewing more to [[BroadStrokes Stone's ideas]] filtered through [[CrackPairing Milius' direction]], it has become a CultClassic. [[StarMakingRole It helped propel Schwarzenegger to mega-stardom]].

* HarsherInHindsight: The scene at the end in which Thulsa Doom is ordering a mass suicide. The film was made shortly after Jim Jones' cult in Guyana did the very same thing. Director John Milius has publicly stated that the scene was based on the events of Jonestown. Jim Jones, James Earl Jones. Coincidence? Probably not.

* ForegoneConclusion: "''...and onto this, Conan! Destined to bear the jeweled crown of Aquilonia upon a troubled brow''", hence, you know Conan's troubles won't really kill him as long as he's not yet king...
