1985 / 96min / DCP

DIRECTOR: GEORGE P. COSMATOS

CAST: SYLVESTER STALLONE

The height of Rambomania coincided with an uptick in international terrorism. After President Reagan screened the film and, at a subsequent press conference, claimed to take a lesson from this one-man victory in Vietnam, Sylvester Stallone’s image displaced that of Uncle Sam in some Army recruiting sites, while posters that put Reagan’s smiling face atop Stallone’s nautilus-built body clutching an impressive automatic weapon were ubiquitous. Some included Rambo’s tagline “NO MAN, NO LAW, NO WAR CAN STOP HIM”; others were simply captioned “Ronbo!”
