Pumping Iron (1977)
Directors: Robert Fiore, George Butler
Starring: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Lou Ferrigno, Franco Columbu
Film in a sentence: A warts-and-all docudrama about the politically-charged world of professional bodybuilding, with the young Arnie manipulating his competitor, Lou Ferrigno, into losing his confidence.
Best bit in the trailer: Arnold explaining his cheeky kiss – “You got to do that. This girl maybe didn’t have a kiss for years, I might as well give her a break.” – as well as the male prisoner who says he wants one too.
Arnold fact: For its 25th anniversary DVD re-release, a follow-up movie called Raw Iron was included as an extra on the disc, which revealed that over 100 hours of footage was shot before being whittled down to 85 minutes.
