Special Note

All footage used is owned by GMV or has been licensed to GMV for use in this documentary. Copyright free background music has been used for the older footage transferred from film. Some of the early film footage was shot under extremely difficult conditions when 8mm film was the technology of the time. We have digitally enhanced this oldest footage where ever possible. We know that all true Zane fans will treasure this rare material from almost 50 years ago.
This is our complete footage on Frank Zane. Some of the material is first time ever on DVD, while some has been seen in other DVDs we offer.
This special feature has been over 2 years in the making.  We salute a great champion.

Unsolicited Testimonial
One word to describe your Zane DVD: EXCELLENT!
Love the “never before seen” footage, included. With the bombardment of “Mass Monsters” these days, it’s refreshing to see a beautiful physique… that seems… attainable?
