Strongest Man in the World (1975)

credit: www.movieguy247.comAfter an accident in the science lab at Medfield College, Kurt Russell becomes the strongest man in the world, not to mention the strongest man ever to give an uncredited Elvis impersonation in the movie Forrest Gump.

 

This movie falls in that fragile post-Walt-Disney era where just about every film the company made was practically pointless in every possible way. And yet, I can’t help but absolutely love just a handful of them, including this one.

Pay special attention to Skyler and Dean Higgins—they are hilarious.

OH, SOMETHING YOU SHOULD KNOW: There’s a part where a guy tries to lift weights and his arms stretch out and nobody seems to care and it makes me uncomfortable.

I’ll make the moral of this story short: The mortal strength of men is only temporary.

Immortal strength is forged quietly, day by day, choice by choice in those moments when self-control overcomes even the smallest of temptations.

Strength is the twin brother of virtue. And “what you choose to think and do when you are alone and you believe no one is watching is a strong measure of your virtue.”

So be strong. When you feel tempted by a weakness, call upon the Lord in prayer, and make the choice to be strong. We always have a choice.

 “I will trust, and not be afraid: for the Lord Jehovah is my strength.” – Isaiah 12:2
