Finding Conan (14-minute documentary)

This documenary, done in four parts, is pretty well done:

Part One:

Part Two:

Part Three:

Part Four:

My only criticism is that I wish he'd taken the time to mention Novalyn Price (Howard's GF), whose biography of Howard was written specifically to debunk the De Camp's erroneous and slanderous portrayal of Howard. Her biography was adapted to film in "Whole Wide World," which was very well done. The maker of this four-part documentary (above) utilizes "Whole Wide World" a lot in his footage, yet he doesn't mention it. Notwithstanding, I like what he's done.

I really hate what De Camp and Carter did to Conan. Carter's biography of Lovecraft is also a load of slanderous crap.

Quite interesting.
I thought De Camp was just a very bad writter who tooke after Howard to continue the serie.
