Sylvester Stallone opened up his private vault of personal memorabilia from his entire career in a video from 2015. The video has recently resurfaced and was made ahead of a Rocky auction that took in over $3 million for U.S. Veterans and Wounded Warriors.
One of the first things Sylvester Stallone comes across is the last military bag that Rambo carries, which prompts the actor to stop dead in his tracks. Stallone can’t believe that the bag is there, which is still in the first few seconds of the video.
Next, Sylvester Stallone tries on the original Rocky leather jacket, and it still fits. After that jacket, he stumbles upon a jacket used from Cliffhanger and then a one-of-a-kind African poster. And even some old blood-stained Rocky shorts.
Sylvester Stallone even finds his cowboy gear for Rhinestone Cowboy, which he refers to as “the most embarrassing scene I’ve ever done.” The bathrobe from Oscar is shown off as are Drago’s boots and cape from Rocky IV.
The video gives some incredible insight into Sylvester Stallone’s view of his career. The actor is genuinely excited to stumble upon certain pieces that he didn’t even know that he had.
