    Question Needle in a haystack. My Sylvester Stallone quest...

    I've actually found Stallone in a number of movies as an extra, based on what little clues have been giving to me. Somehow, I think I may have found him in this movie too, as he said in an interview I came across that he saw the star on this movie sparring with Joe Frazier when he did extras work in 1971 and this film has Ryan O'Neal in it, and I'm sure you can see him walking past Barbra Streisand in this video at the 0:06 mark.



    DEADLINE: We just interviewed Burt Reynolds for his memoir and he said he very much wanted to play Rocky. He was a huge star at the time…
    STALLONE: He would have done well with it, but you know…I just…couldn’t. You’re right, though. At that time, it was the apex of very physical actors. You had Ryan O’Neal, who loved boxing. I saw him spar with Joe Frazier once when I was doing extra work in 1971. I said, “Wow, look at that,” and then you had Burt Reynolds who was a real good college football player. Another tough guy, Jimmy Caan, liked it and you had Nick Nolte. All these guys were the prime suspects to play the character, and they’d all probably have done it very well. It was a miracle that it happened the way it did.

    I previously found him in movies, such as...

    * Downhill Racer
    * The Sidelong Glances of a Pigeon Kicker (the only one IMDb.com even has left, after their bullshit reply to me!)
    * Lovers and Other Strangers
    * MASH
    * Mandingo

    You can also glimpse him in this movie in the wedding scene. He's the tall guy over to the right you can see for a few seconds, with a suit on.
