Arnold Schwarzenegger is so ashamed of the first movie he ever made he thinks the film should be shown to terrorists who won't talk to interrogators.

The former California Governor plays Arnold Strong in the 1969 film Hercules In New York - a low-budget fantasy adventure film that Schwarzenegger starred in as a 22-year-old.

He's glad it isn't a title that he's remembered for.

"There's this political battle over (torture technique) water-boarding at places like Guantanamo Bay. I think they (interrogators) should just say, 'Hey, if you guys don't talk, you'll have to see Hercules in New York'," Schwarzenegger told Men's Fitness magazine,

"I guarantee those guys would talk much faster with that treatment," he says.

Schwarzenegger has returned to acting after a stint as California's Governor, filming a cameo in The Expendables 2 and has three films ready for release in 2013.
