Stay Hungry is an interesting little movie.This is the movie that first introduced Arnold Schwarzenegger as a screen persona,(although we all know that "Hercules in New York" was really Arnold's first film)and launched his Hollywood movie career.
This is based on the novel by Charles Gaines who also wrote "Pumping Iron".
The movie is set in Birmingham,Alabama and basically tells the story a young property developer played by Jeff Bridges who gets involved with a group of bodybuilders,enter Arnold who plays the part of bodybuilding philosopher Joe Santo.
A pleasant quirky little movie in which Arnold possibly put in his greatest acting performance.
Interesting to note that director Bob Rafelson thought Arnold too big to appear next to the other actors,and asked him to lose thirty pounds in weight.
Well worth a look even if you're not a fan of Schwarzenegger as the movie has a great feel to it.
