CONAN THE BARBARIAN (1982) - The ART OF FANTASY (Part 1/10)
The fantasy genre was created in the 50’s via the comic book page sand illustration of Frank Frazetta then followed by comic book artists. However it took 2 decades before the movies paid attention to it and translate it onto the screen reaching its zenith between the mid 70’s and the mid 80’s.
Sourcing the stories from the myths and legends of the Past as well as from the novels of authors like Tolkien (see Part 2), Mary Shelley (see Part 10) or Robert E. Howard, the Fantasy landscape covered many sub genres like Sword and Sorcery / Sci-Fantasy, etc.
The movie which undoubtedly gave the genre its commercial boost is Conan The Barbarian directed by John Milius and adapted from the chronicles of the Cimmerian king as narrated by the aforementioned Howard. Arnold Schwarzenegger is a magnificent Conan supported by a cast of great actors, Max Von Sydow and James Earl Jones as the evil wizard Thulsa Dooom. 
Many posters were created including one by Frazetta but the best ones have been created by Renato Casaro (see Part 5) including the german version and the Japanese style A posters. The Japanese style B has been painted by Seito while the last of the 4 posters above is a bran new limited edition print by Marko Manev.

Jazz funk innovator, keyboardist and Jazz Crusaders founding member Joe Sample redefined jazz starting out in the 60’s and for the following four decades. His syncopated, lyrical style of soloing made him stand out as uniquely gifted improviser and composer on both acoustic piano and electric fender rhodes.

I decided to touch on a few of my favorites featuring mainly Joe’s keyboard solos selected from his incredible work with the Crusaders and his solo albums.

Tracklist soon. #labsounds

"In it, Bridges plays Franklin Cane, a professional tennis player whose mentor/trainer is Jonathan (Roland), who himself was once a great tennis champ and now is intent on molding Franklin into his own likeness.Much of the film follows Franklin through the celebrity territory of non-stop parties, where he meets a celeb photographer (model Maud Adams in her film debut) and where he abandons himself to a hedonistic lifestyle, crippling his future."The Christian Licorice Store" includes one wild sex scene (staged on a trampoline) and several notable cameos - by then-budding actor Allan Arbus and by filmmakers Jean Renoir and Monte Helman. Yes, very trendy.I’ve no idea who or what owns this film now, as Cinema Center went kaput. Other titles in its library were bought up by other studios. But this one has been missing in action just about ever since it was completed.”
