FILM (1990)

Total Recall Arnold Schwarzenegger, Rachel Ticotin, Sharon Stone Director: Paul Verhoeven

'He awoke - and wanted Mars'. Philip K. Dick was never a man of letters, with the opening sentence to the short story We Can Remember It for You Wholesale - the basis for the film Total Recall - proving the point.

A BAD WEEK FOR ...

Dr Kitty Poon Kit

Hong Kong's environment undersecretary admitted problems with her own home environment. Poon said her house in Tai Po had a glasshouse, solar water heater and closed-in balconies, and she had hired contractors to dismantle them. Four lawmakers had earlier been caught with unauthorised additions to their homes. Hong Kong

Six degrees

Arnold Schwarzenegger, freed from his duties as governor of California, has been threatening to return to the big screen. The Austrian Oak (above), who was a self-made millionaire before Hollywood embraced him, didn't let his fortune go to his head: 'Money doesn't make you happy.

Actor best seen, not heard

Whatever you feel about him personally - and he made a lot of enemies in Hong Kong last year when he suggested the city had too much freedom - there's no denying Jackie Chan is a master when it comes to creative stunts.

No Hong Kong high kicks for beefy Arnie

Forgive Arnold Schwarzenegger for sticking to his all-brawn formula. Hollywood's beefcake admits that, unlike Hong Kong's action stars, he is too big to do anything else.

Ken reveals he has a human face

Get reel

AMONG my many passions which draw ridicule from friends is my fondness for old black-and-white movies. Few of my coevals will go out of their way to see anything made before 1985. The reasons they give vary. Some seem to think that Melanie Griffith is sexier than Grace Kelly. That's their problem.

Arnold's 3D ride

SUPERSTAR Arnold Schwarzenegger is shooting scenes for a 3-D film involved in the Terminator 2 thrill ride for the Universal Studios Florida theme park.

All about Arnie

ARNOLD Schwarzenegger has a huge cigar ... and he knows it. As an audience of timid journalists waits hesitantly high up in a Tokyo hotel suite for a 'conversation' to begin, perhaps the most powerful actor in the movie world toys with what he likes to call his 'stogie'. He admires it, blows it, sucks on it. Then, through a pall of expensive smoke, he barks out a command: 'Fire away.

New Planet prepares to add spice to territory

THERE must be times when our friends Sly, Arnie, Bruce et al must wonder whether they would have been better off sticking to movies and leaving the selling of hamburgers to others.

A star by any other name . . .

WOULD Arnold Schwarzenegger be as popular today if his name were, say, Lance Blade or Slash Logan? If the Austrian-born superstar had burst on the scene 30 or 40 years ago he assuredly never would have seen either of his names on theatre marquees.

Thanks to Arnold Stang, the name Arnold implied ''wimp''. And the moniker Schwarzenegger would have been unthinkable.
