The Terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger) arrives from the future on the Griffith Observatory esplanade. Totally naked, he moves towards the railing and looks at the Los Angeles skyline before approaching a group of Punks, hanging around a telescope available to the public, in order to steal their clothes. Made famous in cinema thanks to the movie Rebel Without a Cause in 1955, the Griffith Observatory is located in a park by the same name. As a matter of fact, you can also see a bust of James Dean (touch it, it brings good luck). In this introductory scene, Arnold Schwarzenegger briefly echoes the words of actor Bill Paxton, a beginner at the time. Two years later, Paxton appears in Commando, where he has a minor role, never interacting with the star, Schwarzenegger. The two actors meet up again in 1994, still directed by James Cameron, in True Lies.
