Trivia - "Buckaroo Banzai"
Hollywood Lost and Found

Movie Trivia


When the cast assembled at the Sepulveda Dam in Los Angeles to film the movie's end title footage, the music had not been written yet. To give them something to march to, a John Phillips Sousa march and Billy Joel's "Uptown Girl" were played back on the location during the filming of that sequence.

President Widmark was played by actor Ronald Lacey, who is probably best known for his role as the evil Nazi Toht in "Raiders of the Lost Ark." But Lacey had a throat ailment during filming of "Buckaroo Banzai," and all of his dialogue was replaced by actor Charles Workman.
