On This Day
Today is the 72nd birthday of silver screen legend Sylvester Stallone.
Sly’s career has spanned nearly fifty years, with his iconic performances as Rocky Balboa undoubtedly a highlight. Stallone became the third man in history to be nominated for both Best Original Screenplay and Best Actor for the same film as a result of his work on Rocky – after Charlie Chaplin and Orson Welles.
Our recent screening of Escape To Victory last month saw Stallone star opposite Michael Caine as Captain Robert Hatch, an American who orchestrates a complex escape plan of his POW footballer team during an exhibition match against German players.
