The Wild, Untold Story of “The Good Life”

Christopher McKittrick’s The Wild, Untold Story of The Good Life at Little White Lies is an interesting profile of a “lost” Sylvester Stallone film.  Most Stallone fans have heard of (although never seen) The Good Life, a film starring Frank Stallone, Burt Young, Andrew Dice Clay, David Carradine, Beverly D’Angelo, Frank Vincent, Tony Sirico and former middleweight boxing champ Vinny Pazienza.  It even featured a cameo by Frank’s brother Sly.

Because the film was low-budget and for the opportunity to work with Frank, Sly agreed to his cameo in The Good Life for some golf clubs and the understanding that he wouldn’t be featured prominently in advertisements for the film.  Unfortunately, the film was promoted making it look as if Sly had a much larger, if not starring role in the film.  And that’s when things went off the rails.  Before it was over several lawsuits were filed, an agreement was reached and The Good Life was shelved.

Years ago, I asked Frank Stallone if he thought the film would ever be released.  He said it was highly unlikely.

Maybe someday enough time will have passed and a new agreement could be worked out so that The Good Life gets released.

Sly Stallone Event Raises $100, 000 for Charity

On February 24, 2012, The posted a piece titled Sylvester Stallone Event Raises $100, 000 for Charity.  Here are some highlights:

  • “Rocky is done,” Stallone told about 900 people who paid to hear him in support of the Canadian Diabetes Association.
  • Stallone, in a question and answer session with movie critic Brian Johnson, did not rule out making another Rambo film.
  • Stallone said he did not set out to become an action star and that he was the 11th actor offered the role of Rambo in First Blood.
  • He has starred with such actors as Robert De Niro, but admitted to turning down roles in movies which could have changed his career. He turned down appearing in two Quentin Tarantino movies, as well as American Gigolo, An Officer and a Gentleman and Coming Home. He said turning down the latter film “was very foolish,” but he admitted he had his doubts if he could have been good enough for the searing drama, which eventually starred Jon Voight, Jane Fonda and Bruce Dern.
