The film directed by John Milius, which launched the career of the leading actor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, arrived in theaters in 1982

It is the film that launched Arnold Schwarzenegger’s career internationally, in the role of an imposing Cimmerian warrior: we are obviously talking about “Conan the Barbarian” (1982), inspired by the hero of the same name born from the imagination of the American writer Robert Ervin Howard ( 1906-1936). “Conan the Barbarian”, which can be seen again on Monday 5 July on Sky Cinema Action at 19.35, was directed by John Milius but originally the author of the screenplay Oliver Stone (who initially set the story, then completely rewritten for reasons budget, in a post-apocalyptic future) had proposed directing to Ridley Scott, fresh from the success of «Alien» (1979). Scott declined the proposal, however, and this is not the only curiosity about the film.
