Rod Labbe, a freelance writer and fan of Scott's, collaborated with Scott on four articles: a two-part interview in Flex magazine, two articles in Ironman, and an article in MuscleMag International . According to Labbe, "Larry [was] my childhood hero, a true American success story. He came from nothing and reached the top as a Bodybuilder. It's an honor for me to work with him." Their last interview, entitled "The Golden Man," appeared in two consecutive issues of Ironman magazine in 2006. Before Scott's illness, he and Labbe collaborated on a new article for Films of the Golden Age magazine about American International's Muscle Beach Party (released in 1964), in which Scott played the role of "Rock," a bodybuilder who was part of "Jack Fanny's" (Don Rickles) exercise group (Scott's character name is listed incorrectly on the Internet Movie Database as "Riff" -- the shirts he wears in the film all read "Rock").
During the time he was competing he would train 6 days a week using an upper body lower body split , which took place in an a gym with no air conditioning and after a hard day’s work climbing poles for the telephone company. The workouts lasted 3 hours. Looking back now he feels he was greatly overtraining. His last competition was the 1992 over 50 Mr. Florida, which he won. He still judges contests in the Florida area. He remembers a friend of mine from the Pittsburgh area who moved to Florida, Jim Karas, who has competed in a number of over 50 and 60 contests. I will send this link to his wife, who will show it to him. He was pleased to hear that he is so fondly remembered. Your admiration for him and his physique on this site is well justified. He is a true gentleman.
