Look, I know that it's hardly news that Sylvester Stallone started his cinematic career in the X-rated Party at Kitty & Stud's (later renamed The Italian Stallion for obvious reasons).

None

But I did think it interesting that the film (which I have not seen except for this one fully-clothed clip) contains visuals that would appear again in Stallone's breakthrough hit Rocky.

You sly dog - nice catch!

Be sure to miss "The Lords of Flatbush" (1974) with Stallone, Perry King, Susan Blakely, and Henry "Fonzie" Winkler. Set in the 1950s, we watch as a gang of leather jackets grow up and mature... zzzzzzzzzz.

This film was shot on 16mm originally on a shoestring but ABC, trying to capitalize the waves of 50s nostalgia thanks to "American Graffiti" the year before, had the film blown up to 35mm for a quickie theatrical release.

I remember the annoying jingle: "The Lords of Flatbush is a mooooooviiiiieeeee, About the life in the fiffffffitttteeees"

Frankie Vallie imitation.
