Here is a challenge. Can people post youtube clips of those scenes!

here is the clip fom Personal Best.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o2BDEq5R8Kg

there is info in Raging Bulls, Easy Riders about the making of the movie.
Robert Towne was definately one of us!
The scene was apparently shot with the girls naked from the waist down.
Towne apparently had all these athletic girls hanging round his house during the shoot doing pushups and stuff.


uhm... as one can clearly see in the clip, both are wearing pants.

The best and sexiest was in an Ingmar Bergman film of the sixties "sawdust and tinsel" when an equestrienne, Harriet Andersson, i believe, armwrestles a guy, in shadows and light....it got me started on all this

In case anyone is wondering, that's a very young Abby Dalton, who appeared in many TV shows through the years, including regular appearances on several game shows. If you're lucky enough to catch one of her sleeveless days on $25000/$100000 Pyramid (reruns on GSN), you'll see that she got even more cut and muscular as she aged.

Well, true or not, the book does quote David Geffen as saying "For instance, Towne had this scene where the girls were arm wrestling. He had them shoot it naked from the waist down. There wasn't a reason in the world for that." So, yeah, if you believe the book, which is pretty sensationally written, the director did have the girls naked from the waist down during that scene - even though it makes no sense at all. This was a film that was a $9M budget to start, and ended up costing $16M.... There was no reason for that either.

Thanks for that.

It does makes sense for the scene as it would increase the sexual tension between the leads. Nude armwrestling, if you havent been lucky enough to try it is highly erotic.
Also it was the early eighties, the director was god (not the accountant),coke was everywhere. Towne was apparently having an affair with Patrice Donnelly at the time.

I think the $7M he paid them to take their pants off and armwrestle was worth it.

people like to believe stuff that sounds to good to be true. Whereas most likely it's just not true.

Relax Deadlift,,getting a reaction is what Bull-check is all about. Just check out some of his other "productive" comments on the boards. Just another sad little fellow taking pot shots at the genuine contributions of those trying to add something here. Just ignore the garbage..he gets no reaction..he drops off the radar again..it is that simple.

no, i'm just saying that the two girls probably didn'T armwrestle naked. just a bullshit check. I stil enjoy the movie, it's one of Hollwood's best arm-wrestling scenes.
