Something funny about the picture I just noticed.

Arnold while being a big muscular guy is actually kind of short at only 5’7”. The other guys are all likely well over 6’

Look closely, the picture is taken on a hill and Arnold is standing back and up it in order to make himself (the star of movie) appear taller than everyone else.

He’s so far back you can’t see his legs & feet between the other guy in front of him (who no doubt was put there and squatting precisely to hide Arnold’s diminutive statue).

Well, I was at his inauguration for Governor and my recollection was that he was taller than me and I’m 5’-9”.

Buddy of mine met Arnold in an airport. It was in the late 80s, right at the height (pun intended) of his popularity.

He was amazed at how small Arnold was. The film editors must've had to work overtime to project his larger than life persona.
