This is better than Pumping Iron!

When you watch this film you wonder what happened to the Ms. Olympia contest where women look like healthy athletes (Carla Dunlop, Rachel McLish) to the vein-popping, manly-looking contestants of today? The movie hints the answer with the introduction of Bev Francis. Though she does not win the contest, you can sense that her type is the wave of the future.

I liked this movie far better to Arnold's version, though Arnold was able to launch a mega-career from his movie where Rachel McLish only had a brief and unmemorable movie career.

The competition between McLish and Dunlop is fierce and more intriguing than the Arnold/Ferrigno competition of the men's version. Just watching these two goddesses compete is worth the price of the disk!
