Stumbled across after watching this low-budget British B horror flick from the 80's called "Rawhead Rex", the director seems to have some kinda connection to CTB?:

Quote :
He subsequently co produced a third short titled "Galis' Never Walk backwards", 1982, released by 20th Century Fox theatrically as a support to "Conan The Barbarian".

Great find!

No info of that shortfilm "Galis' Never Walk backwards" on the web, apparently. Surely Mighty and Proto can find something about it using their superpowers, though. Wink

So, apparently the short was shown on theaters right before the "Conan" movie. It had to be a "sword and sorcery" theme, then... probably gauls or celts... "-Galis'-"? scratch

Didn't find too much myself. Shit

Original title was "Chickens Never Walk Backwards".

This guy apparently did the music:

And according to the British Board of Film Classification, the running time was 23m 22s. It was classified on July 1, 1982 and submitted (for classification) by 20th Century Fox Film Co. Ltd (which was the distributor of CONAN THE BARBARIAN in Europe...).

My best guess is this enigmatic short movie was only shown in theaters in the UK...

Very strange...

study

In Sweden, it was quite common for violent movies in the 80's to be censored and then when the movies were too short they used short movies before the main movie.
