biography

Arnold Schwarzenegger was born on July 30, 1947, in Thal, Styria, Austria, where his father worked as a policeman. Since he didn't envision himself as a great intellectual, he turned to bodybuilding while in his early teens. Watching Reg Park's Hercules films encouraged Schwarzenegger to devote more time to weightlifting.

Of course, the overwhelming majority of Arnold Schwarzenegger's films, especially those from the 1980s onward, are 'A' films, not B-movie drive-in flicks. However, he got his start as Hercules in the campy low-budget film Hercules in New York. With the prompting of his friend and mentor Reg Park, Schwarzenegger accepted the lead role in Hercules in New York, released in 1970, not to build an acting career but as a way to build a bank account. Throughout the early to mid 1970s, he took on a handful of various roles, mostly on television shows. Ironically, the documentary Pumping Iron (1977) was the catalyst for Schwarzenegger's subsequent acting career.
