The 1984 film The Warrior and the Sorceress is a sword-and-sorcery movie produced by Roger Corman. Although low budget, the film has since become a cult staple within the genre. The movie was shot in Argentina and stars David Carradine, María Socas, and Luke Askew.
The costume that David Carradine wears in the film is the same costume he wore in Dune Warriors. The director quit the movie during editing, after he was two weeks too late, so another editing team finished the film back in the United States. Footage shot for the film was also included in another film, 1989’s Wizards of the Lost Kingdom II.

When I was in high school I would actually sign up for junk mail. It didn’t matter what it was: newspapers, magazines, anything. I’d get at least three free newspapers every day that I would never read. I’d just collect them and store them in boxes. I loved getting junk mail. It made me feel…important.
And then a couple of years later I discovered aromatherapy and things got better for me.
