“No man may have me, unless he’s beaten me in a fair fight.”
The era of Sword and Sorcery was built in the 80’s with movies such as Red Sonja and Conan the Barbarian. This movie was no different. The soundtrack was done by Ennio Morricone. Not well known but still memorable to be hummed or sung. To enjoy in a car or on a long trip, while writing or drawing or other crafts you take up. What is the plot of this fantastic movie? Here it is…Power-hungry Queen Gedren (Sandahl Bergman) captures the priestesses guarding the Talisman, a mystical orb that created and can destroy the world. But one of the priestesses escapes and seeks out her warrior sister, Red Sonja (Brigitte Nielsen), to warn her about Gedren’s plan for world domination. Lord Kalidor (Arnold Schwarzenegger), the Talisman’s keeper, insists on helping Sonja, and though she scorns the assistance of any man, she soon gains respect for Kalidor’s fighting prowess.
The music brings to life the fantasy elements of the film. Ennio Morricone helps carry us into the world. Where can you get such an amazing soundtrack?
