Actor Sylvester Stallone has never lacked for confidence. Long before his breakout hit Rocky (1976), the young thespian was known among casting directors and discerning cineastes to be brazenly cocky, as proven by the future superstar’s stellar performance in Italian Stallion (1970). Stallone’s Stallion character is known simply and definitively as Stud, a moniker derived from the movie’s original title, Party at Kitty and Stud’s. The plot complexities are easily summed up: Stud has lightly rough sex with his girlfriend, Kitty. Afterward three more chicks show up, eager to party, and Stud goes a round with each. This feat of masculine endurance must certainly have planted a seed for Stallone’s future displays of two-fisted resolve on the epic scale.
You Rocky, is that your salami? There’s more bun than sausage here, but the sight of Stallone’s muscular backside and swinging stallion sack are many and memorable. His spicy passion sausage makes a couple of soft appearances in the title bout.
