The Legends Reunion at World Gym - 2 DVD Set
"A REUNION OF BODYBUILDING GREATS HONOURING WAYNE GALLASCH OF GMV PRODUCTIONS"
Disc #1 is also available as a DIGITAL DOWNLOAD running 85 mins.
This wonderful event was held at the World Gym Corporate Headquarters, Marina del Rey, California on October 25th, 2000. Legendary Gene Mozée was the MC as he introduced some of the great legends of the Iron Game. This was a rare celebration and opportunity for Bill Comstock to gather together Wayne’s friends and associates in celebration of the legends and immortals of bodybuilding, thanks also to the kindness of Joe Gold.
Champions such as LARRY SCOTT, LOU FERRIGNO, DAVE DRAPER, TOM PLATZ, MICKEY HARGITAY, ED FURY, BOB PARIS, ZABO, JOE GOLD, ROBBY ROBINSON, BRAD HARRIS, ERNIE SANTIAGO, CLINT BEYERLE and AL BECKLES - attended, to name just a few. Every attendee is listed in the DVD and many are interviewed by Wayne or Gene. Wayne has been a pioneer of bodybuilding films and videos from his first stills in the mid 1960s to the present day.
Robby Robinson created a special cat sculpture which he presented to Wayne. (See photo below.) Dave Draper also presented Wayne with a copy of his brand new book "Brother Iron, Sister Steel: A Bodybuilder's Book."
