Arnold Schwarzenegger originally wanted to play Kyle Reese. But James Cameron had a different idea and saw Schwarzenegger in the title role of The Terminator and Cameron said to Schwarzenegger, "This movie is not about the hero. It's about The Terminator." 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 »
There are significant differences between the first video releases (Thorn/EMI and HBO Video) and the 1991 Hemdale release in relation to picture, sound and end credits. The Thorn/EMI release has:
A blurry picture throughout
The entire film soundtrack played at the wrong pitch, which sounds like it was recorded on a cassette tape.
The Post Production and credit to Harlen Elison is inserted right above the copyright date and timed to roll along at the speed of the credits.
The HBO Video release has the same blurry picture and high pitch soundtrack with the following changes:
The post production credit rolls as soon as the movie fades to black. After disappearing, a black, cheaply done title card done with "1980s HBO Font" shows the Harlen Elison credit. The previous timed credit that appeared in the Thorn/EMI release has been blacked out and timed to run with the credits. The 1991 Hemdale release has the following:
Soundtrack restored to play at the correct pitch
Picture is sharp and clear. The 1991 Hemdale and the Artisan Entertainment release are identical.
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.
