Sylvester Stallone's first film role was Party at Kitty and Stud's, a sexploitation movie that was shot in 1970 when Sly was 24. Sly's passion for acting was spotted by Stephen Verona when Sly helped a friend at an acting class with a scene from "Death of a Salesman" at New York's prestigious Herbert Berghof School. Verona remembered Sly and a few months afterwards asked him to audition for "The Lords of Flatbush", and the rest is history. Party at Kitty and Stud's was never released. However once "Rocky" was underway it was re-edited and released as ITALIAN STALLION, which was also Sly's nickname prior to "Rocky".
Sly plays the part of "Stud" whose world revolves entirely around sex, sex, and more sex, an interest he shares with his way-out friends and his girl Kitty who likes her men mean and muscular! Stallone acknowledged in a Playboy interview that he was paid a mere $200 for his role in the film.

Here in the states tomorrow is Thanksgiving, so I'm using today's review to talk about something I'm thankful for, Slyvester Stalone in porn. That's right, it turns out that this urban legend is actually true. Before Rocky, Bridgette Neilson, and Rocky #47, Stalone strutted his stuff in a 70's softcore flick originally titled "Party at Kitty and Stud's." The best part is that his mom encouraged him to take the role! Because this is a softcore title, there are traces of a plot, but mostly I just laughed by way through this film because of Sly. Anyways, if you want to see Rambo's flaccid wang blowing in the wind as he plays what can only be a drug induced version of ring around the rosies, this movie is for you!
