multiple hidden weapons (extended disarm) cliche
Beyond Thunderdome, i think, is a terrible movie and easily the worse of the series. It is even hard to set through the second half because it is just so boring.
But that being said; I saw the beginning of it the other day when Max first gets to Bartertown and has to turn over all his weapons at a weapons check; revealing he is caring dozens of hidden weapons. It is supposed to be humorous bit, in which the "bad ass' character comically has dozens of hidden weapons.
It is a silly cliche; but I am curious if THIS film 'invented' that cliche? I don't remember seeing it in any movies prior to 1985 but it is fairly common after.
Was this the first time this cliche was done? or am I wrong?
