Movie Story: From Gold’s Gym in Venice Beach California to the showdown in Pretoria, amateur, and professional bodybuilders get ready for the 1975 Mr. Olympia and Mr. Universe contests in this component-scripted, part-documentary movie. Five-time champion Arnold Schwarzenegger defends his Mr. Olympia title against Serge Nubret and the shy young deaf Lou Ferrigno, whose father is his mentor; the ruthless champ psyches out the young lion. Sardinian Franco Columbu competes in the lightweight class; by lifting the vehicle into a location at the house in Italy a good parking issue is solved by him. Joe Weider is the marketer; Mike Katz and Ken Waller go for the title of Mr. Universe. A high profile, as well as bodybuilding -to-be, go mainstream.
