By the year 1990, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s acting career was in full swing. Although the blockbuster breakthrough of Terminator 2 was still a year away, Schwarzenneger had starred in a respectable string of successful films, including  Commando, Predator, and the comedy Twins. Expectations were high for the new film he was making, a futuristic sci-fi film called Total Recall, based on a short story by renowned sci-fi author Philip K. Dick, and the film delivered, earning a lot of praise, an Oscar for its special effects, and more than a quarter of a billion dollars in worldwide box office receipts.
