Editorial Reviews

The amazing story of the boy from a small Austrian village who became the most successful competitive bodybuilder of all time and went on to become one of the most popular movie stars in Hollywood history, even though at first he could barely act. Schwarzenegger is active in Republican Party politics, even though he's married to Maria Shriver, a member of the Democratic Party dynasty--the Kennedy family!

By Barron Laycock HALL OF FAME on December 20, 2003
Format: VHS Tape
Those of us who had become familiar with Arnold and his progress in the public domain from the time he first became the outrageous success he was in the bodybuilding world, also knew the world was hardy prepared for this steamroller of a human being, a man for whom the normal rules simply do not seem to apply. Other famous bodybuilders had tried to use their muscles and brawn to jump-start a Hollywood career, and although several such as Steve Reeves and Gordon Scott had been major stars in action films during the 1960s, neither was able to translate what was in actuality a brief spurt of public interest in men with superior physiques into a sustaining career.

And, for those of us who knew Arnold when he was merely the greatest bodybuilder of our generation, from the beginning there was something about Arnie that defied all the rules other mortals belabored under. Using the modest investment cash gained from the sale of his small gym in Munich to start himself, Schwarzenegger bought an apartment building and soon bought more property, growing up into the booming California real estate market in a way that propelled him into the ranks of the wealthy long before he ever read a movie script. Similarly, he and bodybuilding buddy Franco Columbo started a masonry business in Santa Monica, putting their brains and brawn to active work, and raking in the resulting financial dividends, reinvesting them to make the money work as hard as they did. This was no ordinary muscleman, and indeed, no ordinary young man. As revealed in this interesting and provocative A& E video biography, Arnold is simply more focused, more driven, and more talented than the rest of us ordinary human beings. .

I have been donning Schwarzenegger as my hero as of recently since I've began learning more and more about his contributions to body-building. Along with this DVD, I recommend ANYONE who chooses to learn more about Schwarzenegger or who wants to learn more about body-building to purchase the book "Educating the Bodybuilder." This man is an inspiration to me and due to the fact that he made it from a poor little town in a poor country to being on top of the body-building world THEN into the movies and THEN into politics, I personally believe that he could be an inspiration to anyone. If you're intrigued, get the movie, it is a television show on DVD so do not expect a great value or a long movie and some parts of his life (mainly the earlier parts of his life before he was involved in movies and politics) are missing which was a disappointment to me as I was mainly interested in learning more about his time as a body-builder but ultimately this is a good docu-biography about "the last action hero."

I am a huge Arnold fan and have read numerous books about him and personally know the woman he dated during his Venice beach days. There is a lot of gaps in this biography, but it serves its purposes informing those who do not know much about him.

I'm a huge Arnold Fan in spite of all the flack he has received. Sure he may have been a womanizer and he may not have gotten an Oscar, but he's still awesome. This Biography gives you a nice look into the life and career of Arnold without being too long or short. As a tried and true Arnold fan I enjoyed it.

I was really excited to see Arnold Schwarzennegger as shown in A & E. His biography is really inspiring, since I am an immigrant just like him. Great dvd, and a nice price.

Film succeeds in showing how equally passionate Arnold Schwarzenegger was as an athlete actor and politician. Well done and worth viewing.
