"Buckaroo Banzai" Producer Neil Canton (left), and the film's writer, Earl Mac Rauch, during a visit to the set. Canton went on to produce the "Back to the Future" films. Rauch had previously written "New York, New York."

During Buckaroo's performance at "Artie'z Artery," Penny Priddy (Ellen Barkin) tries to shoot herself. Here Barkin and the extras pause between takes. This location, a recording studio, was also the site of the video for "Fortress Around Your Heart" by Sting.

(Left to right) Buckaroo (Peter Weller) Reno (Pepe Serna) and Tommy (Lewis Smith) stop for a moment at the command center on their tour bus, World Watch One. The point of view in the film for this scene is actually from the opposite side of the actors in this picture.
