We’re often most ignorant about the things right under our noses. As someone born and raised here in Birmingham, I did not know until yesterday that Stay Hungry, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s first role in which his actual voice was used, was filmed and set right here in Birmingham. It also stars Jeff Bridges, Sally Field and Freddy Krueger.
Fortunately, a friend of mine just received the DVD via Netflix, so we watched it last night. This film is unintentionally hilarious in so many ways. However, the last 20 minutes or so didn’t make any sense to me. If you’ve never heard of it or seen it, get it and invite friends over; well worth it.
Here’s the Wikipedia entry on it.
