The 10 best Arnold Schwarzenegger films

Happy Birthday, Mr. Governator, Mr. Action Star, Mr. Arnold Schwarzenegger!  Arnold took the most unlikely journey to movie stardom by moving to the United States from Austria in 1968 to pursue a bodybuilding career.  And how!  He won the Mr. Olympia title seven times from 1970 through 1980, and after his bodybuilding retirement, he took the big screen by storm in “Conan the Barbarian” (1982).  The rest is history…

There is no doubt that Arnold left a mark in three worlds: bodybuilding, movies and politics, and in celebration of his 71st birthday, why not watch one, two or 10 of his movies?
