1977 IFBB (AFAB) Mr. America
June 18, 1977   Los Angeles, CA.

What a wonderful catalogue of surprises we found when logging this video for inclusion in to the web site and no onto DVD.  The list of competitors shown reads like a who’s who of Bodybuilding in 1977. Wayne shot this particular contest but even he didn’t remember the half of what we found!

For example, there’s a rare appearance of Mike Mentzer guest posing, Franco Columbu guest posing and doing a strength act of repetition deadlifts, a young guy called Arnold presenting the trophies, plus some judging highlights – and here’s the list of contestants you will see:

Mike SABLE, George NAVARETTE, Bronston AUSTIN, Dave MASTORAKIS, Len ARCHAMBAULT, Skip ROBINSON, John DEFENDIS, Steve DAVIS, Ray MENTZER, Dave DUPRÉ and the three class winners: DANNY PADILLA, ROGER CALLARD and PETE GRYMKOWSKI.  Overall winner – DANNY PADILLA.

A classic contest indeed – shot on silent film and transferred to video, now to DVD, with music added.  Very good quality, given the technical standards of the day.

The running time of this segment is 49 minutes.

Total running time of the DVD is 109 mins.
