Tonight airs (at 9.20 pm, Italy 1) “Rambo”, a film directed in 1982 by Ted Kotcheff, inspired by the novel “First Blood” by David Morrell and the first chapter of the film saga on the Vietnam veteran played by Sylvester Stallone. The actor is John Rambo, a veteran decorated with a medal of honor who seeks to reintegrate into American society after returning from the war in the Southeast Asian country. As soon as he returns to Hope, a small town in Washington state, he runs into Sheriff Will Teasle (Brian Dennehy) who takes him for a tramp and has him arrested. But Rambo manages to escape into the woods and keeps an entire army of policemen in check until Colonel Samuel Trautman, his former commander in Vietnam, contacts him. “Rambo” is a compelling, spectacular and suspenseful film. The film focuses on the drama of American veterans, who returned home after the defeat, victims of the contempt of the anti-militarists and unable to readjust to normal life also because of the traumas experienced during the conflict. Stallone is extraordinary in the role of the invincible green cap, with a fragile soul and marked sensitivity. The film conquers critics and audiences. Costing $ 15 million, it collects 125 and soon becomes a cult. Waiting for airing, here are 15 things you may not know.
