I realize this is a somewhat vague question, but I'm working off 20-year-old memories here. Back around 1980 there were three movies released which featured sentient, or at least living, weapons. I remember watching an interview where the man being interviewed said that they were a "loose trilogy" based on something, and that more was planned, but as I said that was 20+ years ago.
The two films I know of are Hawk the Slayer (1980) and The Archer: Fugitive from the Empire (1981). Hawk wielded the Mindsword, a 2-handed sword that responds to mental commands, and the Archer had the Heartbow, which could only be used by one pure of heart (or something like that). The weapons didn't talk or anything, but were supposedly "alive" to a point. Both stories were set in a generic Dragonlance-style world.
So, here's the question: What was the third movie in this "trilogy" (if it was one), and were these based on a book series or anything?
I've glanced through the IMDB cast & crew for both movies, but I'm not seeing any common names, so I have no idea who was giving the interview. It would have been on TV back in the early 80s. I'd pass it off as a kid's wishful thinking except my parents both remember the same thing, so it was apparently something we all saw together back in the day.
Help me, StackExchange... you're my only hope.
