Terminator - Arnie's Eyebrows
I can't believe nobody has noticed this yet!
Sometime in the first 45 minutes of the film, Arnie's eyebrows just disappear completely with no explanation at all. Trust me, watch the film. When he first appears he has his usual dark, bushy eyebrows. But by the time he is driving around the carpark looking for Sarah Connor, he doesn't have any at all (which is why he looks so bizarre).
I think James Cameron did this because it was easier to make a dummy special-effects head (used later in the film when Arnie performs eye surgery on himself) without having to put realistic eyebrows on it. Either that, or the explanation was left on the cutting-room floor.
Special Requirements:
Just watch the movie

If you remember earlier in the film during their (Sarah and Reese) first confrontation with the terminator, they were being chased down the alley by the terminator, Reese at one point stopped and shot out the gas tank on one of the cars and the Terminator caught fire, eveidently not enough to burn the hair on his head off, but looks like enough to burn off his eyebrows.

Actually, both his eyebrows and *some* of his hair is burned off. Nice of the fire to give him a perfect buzz cut. lol Notice at the beginning of the movie how much longer his hair is, and then after the gas tank blowing, he's got no eyebrows and shorter hair.

Also, his hair & skin etc is artificial. No doubt it will grow faster than a normal human's because Terminators are manufactured. I can't amagine a Terminator factory with a bunch of Arnie heads sitting on a shelf waiting to grow eyebrows for two weeks.
