Conan the Barbarian, the 1982 John Milius sword-and-sorcery fantasy action adventure thriller ("Thief Warrior Gladiator King"; "Written by John Milius and Oliver Stone"; based on the pulp novels by Robert E. Howard) starring Arnold Schwarzenegger (in the title role as Conan), James Earl Jones (as Thulsa Doom), Sandahl Bergman (as Valeria), Ben Davidson, Cassandra Gaviola, Gerry Lopez (as Subotai, thief & archer), Mako (as the Wizard), Valerie Quennessen (as the Princess), William Smith, and Max Von Sydow ("as King Osric")

Artist: Frank Frazetta
Important Added Info: Note that when this movie was in the planning stages in 1980, this special poster was created (it says "Coming Soon! A Major Motion Picture"), and it has the classic Frank Frazetta art of Conan from his paperback book cover (we don't know if Arnold Schwarzenegger had yet been cast!). The poster is quite rare, and it would be two more years before the movie was actually released, and the Frazetta art was not used on the U.S. posters, although it was partly used on some posters from other countries! Also note that this poster contains artwork of an unclothed woman, so we have placed a white bar over those areas, for those who are bothered by such images. Of course, the actual poster does not have those white bars!

Condition: very good. The poster had tiny paper loss at the top and bottom crossfolds and fine surface paper loss along most foldlines (typical of high-gloss posters of this period). Overall, the poster was in very good condition prior to linenbacking. The restorer linenbacked the poster "in the European style", meaning that they did not do restoration to the defects described above, but they are really not at all distracting (and any restorer could easily touch them up without re-backing the poster).
