Strangely enough, this reminds me of Ahnold's work in "Predator".

Probably not the first (Blackface in movies goes back all the way to the beginning; in American culture it goes back to the start of the 19th century), but the image does have an Al Jolson/Eddie Cantor vibe to it, yeah.

I like it 'cause it's so creepy on so many levels (I found it weird to see something so Bunuel-esque in a 20th Century Fox B-picture), but it does have a bit of the flavour of ol' Banjo Eyes for sure.
