[[3]] Conan the Destroyer (1984) [imdb]

This movie passed 3 of 3 tests (although dubious). It was entered by Michael on 2009-08-03 21:14:23.



Michael said:
There are three named female characters in the film: Zula, Queen Taramis and Princess Jehnna. The latter two talk to each other briefly, about a nightmare (Taramis comforts Jehnna). At one point Queen Taramis also asks Princess Jehnna to bring the "treasure" to her.

Zula and Princess Jehnna also talk to each other, about how to become a warrior (although this conversation partly involves "men" as a topic).

Although the match is dubious, the film passes. But only just.
