Description
Used in the Exhibit: Play by Play - A Century of L.A. Sports Photography, 1899-1989.
The 38th Governor of California (right, with Ken Sprague), taking a breather at the original Gold's Gym in Santa Monica. Backed by Woodland Hills-based publishing mogul Joe Weider, Arnold Schwarzenegger wasn't the first muscle man to become a movie star; his body-building idol, Steve Reeves, was featured in numerous "sword-and-sandal" epics produced in Italy. But after breaking through in the acclaimed documentary "Pumping Iron," Schwarzenegger became the world's most bankable action-hero star. Photo dated March 2, 1975.
