I watched Pumping Iron again the other night and was reminded what an excellent doco it is. It tells the story of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s quest to win the 1975 Mr Olympia title. Before he was everything he is today, he was one of the heroes of a period in bodybuilding when men looked more like Greek statues and less like fake-tanned roid-filled bulls.
If you haven’t seen it I recommend renting the DVD and settling in for a lovely period piece. I liked it best when someone asked Arnie if he drinks milk? “I don’t drink milk. Milk is for babies.”
