THIRTY years ago Monday, First Blood hit movie screens, introducing audiences to John Rambo, the embattled Vietnam veteran played on screen by Sylvester Stallone.

The movie was an enormous hit, earning US$125 million worldwide on just a $14-million budget. The violent, R-rated action thriller spawned three sequels, video games, and, improbably, an animated series for kids.

And it established Stallone as a major Hollywood star outside of his Rocky series.
