1986 The film is about ages old, and self-drawn battle between immortal warriors until there is only one immortal left on earth, hence the tagline " There can only be one". The movie based on a story by Gregory Widen . Gregory Widen wrote the script to Highlander, which he then titled "Shadow Clan," as a class assignment while he was an undergraduate in the screenwriting program at UCLA. Widen sold the script for $200,000. It stars Christopher Lambert which launched Lambert to stardom, it also stars Sean Connery, Clancy Brown, and Roxanne Hart.
The original orchestral score was composed by Michael Kamen, but the soundtrack includes several songs by Queen. Queen's 1986 album "A Kind of Magic" features most of the songs from the film. All of Queen's songs in Highlander were purposely written for the movie.
Queen wrote many of the songs specifically to match the mood of the scenes when the songs were played, notably Brian May's "Who Wants to Live Forever," concerning the doomed love of Connor and his wife Heather. Connor remains by his mortal wife's side all her life and watched her age, and after she dies, he leaves to wander the world, taking Ramirez's sword as his weapon.
