Good ole Paco.That movie propelled me into learning some Muay Thai.
While on a business trip to Italy (i.e., attending the SFB), I made a side trip to Rome and did the tourist shuffle at the Colosseum. At the earliest opportunity, I politely asked the guide if he knew and wouldn't mind pointing out all the exact locations....and who could forget the awesome battle in the Roman Coliseum with Chuck Norris in Way of the Dragon!
Some years back, Robert Patrick (the T-1000 himself) had traveled overseas with the USO, and while I confess that I did not queue up for an autograph or anything like that, he and I had a chance meeting at the men's room sinks. As we both scrubbed our paws, I first broke the ice by politely asking for his recollections of a Meat Loaf video he had appeared in back in the '90s, which clearly endeared me to him (he doesn't get asked about that one much, I suppose). As we dried off, I then got around to asking him about the authenticity of Linda Hamilton's chin-ups, and although he wasn't around for that scene, he was fairly confident that it was indeed really her we're seeing: no stand-ins, no Hollywood magic of any kind.Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor in Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
