Sylvester Stallone, a Man of Letters

September 23, 1990

It just can't be a coincidence anymore. First there was "Rocky." Then there was "Rambo" and "Cobra." Now, it seems that Sylvester Stallone is doing yet another one-word title movie named after a five-lettered protagonist, "Oscar" (mentioned in the Sept. 16 Movie Chart column). He should stop beating around the bush and call all of his movies exactly what they are: MONEY!

It is also interesting to note that if you replace the m in Rambo with a C and rearrange the letters you get Cobra ; and if you replace the b in Cobra with an s and rearrange the letters you get Oscar . This means the pattern is to replace the middle letter and rearrange the letters. Since this means that the c must now go, I predict his next film will replace it with a t and become "Ratso."
