Well, we know Arnold was there at this very scene and playing around on set, so am figuring maybe he also took part in the raid, but was edited out. Milius also filmed 2 versions of the Vanir Raid, and mixed up the footage in the finished release print.

I was just curious if its possibility.



Looks like his mouth

It's not impossible, but I've never seen Arnold with a Vanir suit, just with a sweater and a large smile Mr. Green (in particular next to Franco Columbu). Moreover, I think Arnold was also filming a part of the "Search sequence" (for the snow I guess) at that time...

I am strongly thinking Milius dressed up Arnold and added him to the bunch. The Final version is Thorgrim with a hammer, though theres bad editing left in that scene in the release print, as one second we can see Thorgrim with a sword and next with his hammer, which is a goof. But I think Milius filmed 2 versions of the vanir raid.

Also Columbu seems to have been used in different varients too:







*Can see the concept art one here is like the above image, while final movie one isnt.


And of course the known images of Arnold on set for his (official?)scene(s):

Ok, you think, but there is no evidence, no picture. You're maybe right, and maybe you're dreaming being up ! Mr. Green

But I admit your assumption is interesting, really. Too bad we only see a bit of face... Mr. Green

Well, I'd say its in my favor, but if you want the exact picture, your gonna have to search for more magazines. study

We know also that Milius was re-dressing actors, like for example Conan Angelo and no doubt others. Wink

Yes, no doubt on this. But I'm just surprised Arnold didn't say anything about a cameo during the Vanir raid in his numerous interviews.

You know, I'm a sceptic guy...

Thats fair, but then again you know how it goes with interviews, sometimes they remembers things, sometimes forget things, sometimes they have it right, sometimes they dont.

My guess is, if it indeed happened, that its just such a minor thing, it wasnt important enough to mention nor even remember.

As I see, when you have an idea you don't give up... and I say : bring me The proof. What, me, Thomas the Apostle..... !? Laughing

Proto, Mighty, Chrysa, what do you think about this possible cameo of Arnold ? Come on, guys ! Don't be shy... Mr. Green

My answer is that it could be him. But without more information we can't tell more. Strange that they didn't mention it in the DVD commentary if it is right.

I think that's not Arnold. Why would he be dressed up like a Vanir ? For the joke ? Because they were short of extras when shooting the riders charge ? Nah....

I don't see Arnold doing that. He was the main star of the movie.

Good catch with the pants/no pants Pictish scout, though... Most probably, poor Columbu was freezing his ass off in the snow, and asked for some extra pants... and blue gloves! Wink
