Movie Trivia/Goofs

  • Conan's response to the Mongol General is an abbreviation of a real quote attributed to Genghis Khan: "The greatest pleasure is to vanquish your enemies and chase them before you, to rob them of their wealth and see those dear to them bathed in tears, to ride their horses and clasp to your bosom their wives and daughters." Subotai (or Subedei Baghadur) was the name of Great Khan's general. The fact that Conan is not only chased but to some extent orphaned by dogs also recalls Genghis Khan's well-documented fear of that particular animal. Finally, the writers' preoccupation with steel seems oddly coincidental, given that Genghis Khan's birth name, Temujin, is frequently translated as "finest steel."
  • Although the Hyborian Age of Conan was appx 10,000 BC,creator Robert E Howard used Medieval themes and influences in the Conan stories to avoid any complicated historical research.
  • Conan's response to the Mongol General's question, "What is best in life?" are the main character's very first lines of dialog and it is a full twenty minutes into the movie before he delivers them.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): During the battle at the orgy, Conan slashes a guard across his chest. The actor, with his back to the camera, is clearly throwing fake blood on himself as he falls.
