"Buckaroo Banzai - Pictures from the Archives" Page 4

Dr. Lizardo/Lord John Whorfin (John Lithgow) leers over Penny Priddy (Ellen Barkin) in a publicity photo for the film.

New Jersey (Jeff Goldblum, right) finds Buckaroo (Peter Weller) while exploring the Lectroid's factory. When Jersey asked where they were, Buckaroo replied "I have no idea" during the filming of the scene. His response was changed in post-production to "I'd hate to tell you!"

In a scene that was cut from the final version of the film, Penny Priddy (Ellen Barkin, left front) yells at Lizardo/Whorfin (John Lithgow, right front) that she is convinced that he is Hanoi Xan, boss of the World Crime League. "Hanoi Xan... who's that?" a confused Lizardo says to himself after she's been dragged away. Several references to Xan, a character that would have appeared in the next Banzai film, were edited out.

After their mission, Buckaroo and friends head back to their bus while the evil Lectroids are searched in the background of a scene that was removed from the film's final version. Front, left to right: Bill Henderson as Casper Lindley, Pepe Serna as Reno, Peter Weller as Buckaroo, and Lewis Smith as Perfect Tommy.
