Product Description

Product Description

Before Rocky was a knock-out, before “the Fonz” was TV’s “Leader of the Pack”, two unknown actors named Sylvester Stallone (Rocky) and Henry Winkler (TV’s “Happy Days”) starred in their first major screen roles. Soon they’d rule the box office and the airwaves, but before they were kings, they were THE LORDS OF FLATBUSH! Clad in blue jeans, black leather jackets and bad attitudes, Stanley (Stallone), Butchey (Winkler), Chico (Perry King, TV’s “Riptide”) and Wimpy (Paul Mace, Paradise Alley) are a 1950s Brooklyn gang of four cool, sexy rebels. Despite their tough appearance, these boys just want to have fun, but reality - a.k.a. adulthood - rears its ugly head when Stanley’s steady informs him they have to get married, and blue-collar Chico falls for a beautiful blonde (Susan Blakely, Over the Top) from the right side of the tracks. A high-octane cruise down memory lane, THE LORDS OF FLATBUSH is “immensely appealing, often hilarious, surprisingly touching and superbly acted” (The Hollyw

Amazon.ca

When The Lords of Flatbush was released in 1974, Sylvester Stallone was still an unknown actor polishing his screenplay for Rocky, and Henry Winkler was approaching TV superstardom as "Fonzie" in the first season of Happy Days. In this modest, low-budget feature, they play second and third fiddle (respectively) to Perry King, whose respectable career, ironically, would never reach such stratospheric heights. As for their costar and diminutive fourth "Lord of Flatbush," Paul Mace appeared in only one more movie after this (Stallone's Paradise Alley), and was killed in a 1983 traffic accident at the age of 33. Such is the random nature of fame and fate.

The movie itself is noteworthy mostly for the pre-stardom appearances of Stallone and Winkler, and a strong costarring role for that most ubiquitous of '70s actresses, Susan Blakely. Despite its amateurish style, muddy sound quality, and rambling scenes that have casual appeal but minimal narrative momentum, the movie is blessed with laid-back authenticity, recognizing the value of awkward pauses and jumpy rhythms of conversation. The ensemble of self-named Lords--four leather-clad rebels in 1957 Brooklyn, moving reluctantly toward adulthood--is solidly cast, and even the most familiar scenes (like making out at a drive-in showing From Here to Eternity) ring with engaging truth. Codirector Martin Davidson later covered similar territory in Eddie and the Cruisers, and Barry Levinson transcended this shoestring affair with his 1980 classic Diner, but The Lords of Flatbush stands on its own as an earnest and lightly entertaining drama that boosted its costars to bigger and better things. --Jeff Shannon

I have recently seen "The Lords of Flatbush" on an older VHS copy which started out in widescreen until the opening credits were done. I wish I would have seen this widescreen DVD here. It probably looks spanking good. Stanley (Sylvester Stallone) is at a crossroads with his steady girl who feels they should get married. Bike-riding Chico is at odds with the new girl in town, Jane. Henry "The Fonz" Winkler makes his pre-"Happy Days" appearance in this film. He is the man! His voice sounds kind of funny at times. In one shot it looked like his dialogue wasn't matching his mouth movement. Was his voice dubbed? The soundtrack consists of songs written for the film that sound like typical '50s songs.
If you like films of this genre like I do, go for it, dude!

"The Lords of Flatbush" stars a young Sylvester Stallone in his first big movie. The film takes place in the 1950's and centers around four friends. Each of them find a special lady in their lives and decide to make some commitments. The movie also features Henry Winkler who later went on to become 'Fonzie', duh! The film is almost powerful, but to watch it now, it seems dull at moments. Listen to the remarkable soundtrack to this movie and appreciate the too cool decade. Not! This is an earnest production that values friendship and Stallone's birth!

The Lords of Flatbush is your typical greaser movie with rival gangs, romance and growing up. A must have for your collection. I wouldn't tag this as murder and mayhem, come on people it is just a typical movie of life back in the 50's and 60's, oh my gosh I was there. I feel like I am in a real version of "Field of Dreams."
