The children were getting antsy after a 2 1/2-hour flight as a park photographer took one final shot. That last click of the camera was like the starting gun of a race. The kids were off, with just six hours to have the time of their lives.

"Rambo" has given Sylvester Stallone an unusual number of opportunities for free exposure on TV, thanks in part to the film's electronic press kit that was prepared by the production company for use by TV news and feature shows. One clip--called a "real life" feature--shows Stallone spending time with a boy who is dying. They walk along a scenic beach, talk about life and the movie, romp together in the surf and check out the controls in Rambo's helicopter.
