Frank Stallone has had a long and winding career in the entertainment industry as a musician, actor, and boxer. Now, he’s the subject of his own documentary “Stallone: Frank, That Is.”
The documentary captures Stallone, the younger brother of Sylvester, as he recounts a series of moments throughout his career. From going off on his own in 1964 as a young musician to opening for THE Bruce Springsteen. His big break came with songs featured in the hit “Rocky” films and later on disco’s finest “Staying Alive.” In both films, he’s rubbing elbows with its respective stars Sylvester Stallone and John Travolta. As an actor, he’s been featured in “Rocky,” “Miami Vice,” and “Hudson Hawk,” “Tombstone,” and “Fred Clause.”
As someone who has seen all sides of the industry over four decades, it was only a matter of time before someone decided to make a documentary about Stallone’s journey in the industry alongside Hollywood’s biggest heavyweights.
Director Derek Wayne Johnson highlights the Golden Globe and Grammy-nominated artist’s big breaks and the rough patches both on and off the stage, with commentary by colleagues Richie Sambora, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Billy Dee Williams, and family members Sylvester Stallone and his late mother, Jackie Stallone.
It’s Frank’s authenticity that shines through, as he tells unbelievable stories of working with today’s legends and his inspiring story of always getting back up from a knockout.
“Stallone, Frank That Is” is available on January 19th on Digital & VOD.
