    The clip has a star-shaped red-poker that gets shoved into burning coal before it lands right on the screen and loud music accompanies the searing of the company name. Can anyone help help remember what the company's name was & have a link to a clip of it on YouTube?

    That’d be Carlton screen advertising, probably seen by many cinema-goers hundreds of times during the 1990s and 2000s :)

    The opening 45 seconds are narration, but then we get the sequence El Rifle is referring to, the forging of the sword. It still amazes me how much patience the director and editor had, how much they trusted the audience to watch long sequences in that movie carried mainly by that amazingly bombastic score. After the forging of the sword, there's a brief scene of Conan's dad talking to him as a boy. Then you get this scene of raiders arriving at the village. It's two minutes before a sword is swung, and there's hardly a word of dialogue throughout the battle. It's utterly alien next to a Marvel action scene.
