The Conqueror  
A Film Review by a Dude with a Fu Manchu Complex



Howard Hughes wanted his cinema ripping and lusty, bigger and ballsier and louder than anything ever before. Fair enough, but with The Conqueror there was a twist - Howard Hughes envisioned cowboy idol John Wayne as the medieval Mongol warlord Genghis Khan. "Say what...? Genghis Khan, as in cowboys and barbarians?" "Yes, Grasshopper. But beware the jive of a honky disguised for kung fu, for on that path lies grave danger."

John Wayne does not appear to have been a character actor. I mean, I think I heard his Mongolian accent slip a couple times.
