Leading make-up designer Dick Smith declined James Cameron's invitation to work on the film, as he didn't think he could do cyborg make-up, so he suggested his friend Stan Winston who had just been Oscar-nominated for his robot work on Heartbeeps (1981); Cameron reluctantly accepted. Fortunately, Winston was not frustrated by the fact that Cameron had already done most of the design work on the film himself. In fact, his work on the film's practical special effects payed off so well that both men became personal friends. They later founded special effects company Digital Domain together, and would subsequently collaborate on Aliens (1986), Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) and T2 3-D: Battle Across Time (1996).

(at around 1h 24 mins) When the Terminator gets on the motorcycle to chase after Sarah in the pick-up, he turns on the ignition key and jumps up on his right leg to kick start the bike, but you hear a electric starter motor instead before he rides off. See more »

The opening credits run while large outlines of the two halves of THE TERMINATOR cross each other. After the last directorial credit is shown, the title THE TERMINATOR zooms backward, is filled by metallic blue, and reveals itself. See more »

I don't like action movies generally, and had to be coaxed into seeing this one by a friend. It was a major and pleasant surprise to me, and I left it with questions beyond the scope of the film, which always happens with the ones I really like (ie, Did John know who Reese was/would be when he sent him?). Most of all, I left it a Michael Biehn fan; he is great in this movie.
