Rocky in the raw

Sylvester Stallone and porn are words you happily don’t hear used together much. Until now that is as the rights to a little seen 1970s erotic movie, featuring the Rocky star in a lead role, have been auctioned off on ebay for $412,100.

The film, Italian Stallion, was originally called The Party at Kitty and Stud's. Stallone plays Stud, a brutish alpha male who invites some strangers to a sex party in the apartment he shares with his girlfriend Kitty.

Stallone told Playboy magazine in 1978 that he took $200 for the two days' work on the film at a time when he was starving and desperate on the streets of New York. ‘I'd been bounced out of my apartment and had spent four nights in a row at the Port Authority bus terminal, trying to avoid the cops, trying to get some sleep and keeping my pens and books in a 25-cent locker,’ he said. ‘I mean, I was desperate.’

The auction included worldwide rights to the film and the original 35mm negatives.

Unlike the Rocky saga, at least this one doesn't have six sequels.
