Sylvester Stallone was born on July 6, 1946, in New York’s gritty Hell’s Kitchen, to Jackie Stallone (née Labofish), an astrologer, and Frank Stallone, a beautician and hairdresser.

His father was an Italian immigrant, and his mother’s heritage is half French (from Brittany) and half German.

Stallone followed Rocky (1976) with F.I.S.T (1978), loosely based on the life of Teamsters boss “Jimmy Hoffa”,

and Paradise Alley (1978) before pulling on the boxing gloves again to resurrect Rocky Balboa in the sequel Rocky II (1979).

The character of Green Beret “John Rambo” was the creation of Canadian-born writer David Morrell,

and his novel was adapted to the screen with Stallone in the lead role in First Blood (1982), also starring Richard Crenna and Brian Dennehy.

The movie was a surprise hit that polarized audiences because of its commentary about the Vietnam war, which was still relatively fresh in the American public’s psyche.

Love him or loathe him, Sylvester Stallone has built an enviable and highly respected career in Hollywood,

plus, he has considerably influenced modern popular culture through several of his iconic film characters.Police Story (1985)
