New This Month On Video/DVD!


Dear Women's Physique World (WPW) Customer,

Welcome to WPWMagazineOnline #17. As we mentioned last month, former IFBB Pro Shelley Beattie passed away February 2008, and we will remember her by reproducing the two WPW/WPP print magazines for which she was on the cover- 1990 Issue #3 of the Women's Physique Publication (WPP) and the Women's Physique World (WPW) November/December 1994 issue, where she shared the cover with Sharon Bruneau. The WPP print mag is an incredible issue, if we say so ourselves..features Shelley's big win in the 1990 USA, which also featured top stars such as Tazzie Colomb, Yolanda Hughes, Nikki Fuller, Tara Dodane and many others; Debbie Muggli's win in the 1990 Jr. Nationals; the 1990 Teen/Collegiates featuring a young 16 year old Alphie Newman; the Steel Rose Strength and Physique Contest, featuring the 6'3" Shirley Eson, winner Denise Rutkowski and Jan Harrell and others in the strength show; the 1990 Europeans and French Championships and other local/regional US shows. Also, this 128 page magazine (no ads) features many bios: Beattie, Muggli, Skye Ryland, Joanne McCartney, MaryEllen Campo, Denise Duffield, Cathey Compton-Smith, Eve Ripoli, Cyndie Meintzer, Diane Talik, Marci Fraser, D'Lynne Kristsky/Miller, Claudia Mountford/Wagner, Sharon Dombroskas/Robelle, arm-wrestler Liane Dufresne and many others, including the foreign women. The WPW issue features Laura Binetti's win in the 1994 Canada Pro Cup (and large bio on her), the 1994 Jr USA, Valerie Gangi's win in the 1994 Cal State, bios for Joanne Lee, Cyndie Jones and others.
     In addition, we have have two new video titles for April: new work with Trudy Ireland in top contest shape on WPW Video/DVD 719 and WPW Video/DVD 720 features Canadian Pam Howard in off season shape (off season video with Alley Miesch-Nie from WPW 527 also included). Also, WPW Video 99 (Sharon Arrildt/Marvel) and WPW Video 202 (1991 Extravaganza Strength Contest) are now on DVD for the first time.
     See you in May when we will post the Denise Zimmerman and Zuzana Korinkova cover issues shown above.

April 2008 - New Releases: (click the names or picture below)

Video/DVD 719 Trudy Ireland

We met Trudi at the 2001 Junior USA and we have had full photo/video sessions with her every other year or so since. Her three other titles are still in catalogue, including WPW 449 (video only at this time) and WPW 539 and 685, on video and DVD. For  this tape, we had two sessions with her- in top contest shape (ripped at 155 pounds) at the time of her big win in the "Over 50" Masters Nationals in July 2007, then a month later when she was up to 165 pounds, but you would hardly know the difference. At 5'4", Trudi has among the most mass pounds-per-height on the scene today...and, the definition is very evident as well. At the contest, she hits the shots in a bikini and two skirts, and during the next session another bikini and three more dress outfits, showing off incredible size, definition and vascularity. An interview is also included- see why this "Star" can be "Called #1".  Video/DVD runs 100 minutes.


This is our second release for Pam (Video/DVD 697 is still available, of course) and she is again in her huge (5'7" 165) pound off-season condition. Since this was done during the same time-frame as our other tape, we tried to do something a bit different, so in addition to her regular posing scenes, we have her hitting the shots to live piano music (courtesy Paul Fejko) for some segments. Pam is not ripped, but shows off considerable size and shapes throughout, but is always known for her 16+" arms. She poses in a two-piece, three dress items and is interviewed by two different interviewers, with her footage running about 50 minutes. To fill out this release, we have added all of WPW 527, which had not been on DVD yet. This featured Alley Miesch-Nie's footage from 2003, when she was in similar off-season shape. Alley does gymwork, poses in four outfits and is interviewed.  Video/DVD runs 2 1/2 hours.

The following are older VHS titles that are now available on DVD:

Video/DVD WPW-99 Sharon Marvel

She was still Sharon Arrildt at this time, but returned to her maiden name shortly after this work was done. This was our second full session with her (her first title is the oldest title we currently have of anyone in catalogue- WPW Video/DVD 74) and she was in huge off-season shape for the two full photo/video sessions we had with her during 1988. We lead off with some very heavy gymwork, then the 5'3" 155 pounder hits the shots in several outfits and is interviewed. A short time after this, we did some 'camcorder' work with her (and you will see some footage of Susan Myers) posing in and around the Rappahannock River in Fredericksburg, Virginia, posing in two-pieces and a dress. Of her five WPW titles, WPW 74 and 99 are now the ones on DVD, but we will master her WPW 161, 246 and 283 on DVD in the future as well.  Video/DVD runs 2 hours.

Video/DVD WPW-202 The 1991 Extravaganza Strength Contest

By our count, we taped 11 of these Extravaganza Bodybuilder Strength shows between 1987 and 2001, and nine of them are currently in catalogue (we hope to master the '87 and '88 shows for DVD-only in the future. This is the 4th event we now have on DVD (others include WPW 154, 178 and 463) and we will master the others (WPW 223, 240, 263, 313, 359 and 401) for DVD in the future, though all are still available on video. For this 1991 Extravaganza, 14 top women competed, including Drorit Kernes, Raye Hollitt and her sister Tess, Claudia Wagner, Rachel Mathias, Sally McNeil, D'Lynne Miller, Karin Mitchell, Vicki Walker, Cheryl Sillich, Leisa Campbell, Tarus Burns and Tory Masonis. Lifting events included chins, dips, squats, bench pressing and curls.. Video/DVD runs 2 hours.
