Theme from Hawk the Slayer (1980)

Hawk the Slayer – glorious low budget British sword and sorcery from the bowels of the early 80s. From what I remember of it, when I watched it in a VHS frenzy one autumnal afternoon, was that it was not as good as The Beastmaster or The Sword and the Sorceror, but had a Britishness that appealed (it had Bernard Bresslaw as a Cyclops, for goodness sake – the only thing missing was Charles Hawtrey as a nobleman and it would have scaled the heights of greatness). It has Jack Palance as the villain. He should have teamed up with Rip Torn from The Beastmaster and he would have ruled the Universe easily. Would you like to hear the theme tune from composer Harry Robertson? It’s here;
