Description

    "John Rambo's" Poncho from "First Blood." Orion, 1982. Made of brown canvas, roughly torn edges, purposely distressed with faux blood and bullet holes; with costumer's tag; worn by Stallone as "John Rambo."

    "What makes this garment so significant is that it saved me. What I mean by that is, while working on the script, I had no idea how cold it was going to be in Canada. I had written that John Rambo escapes in a flimsy, sleeveless, sweatshirt. Once we were out there filming, I realized, "I'm not gonna survive much longer unless I've got something to wear." Rather than make the character steal a policeman's jacket or something, low and behold, in real life, I found this discarded piece of industrial canvas underneath a truck that must've been there for thirty years. It smelled of oil and it was stained and rugged and weathered and I thought, "What a perfect garment for this character!" And it was made right at that moment. What you're seeing in the film is actually what happened spur of the moment -- I took the canvas, cut a hole in it, and wrapped it around myself; the wire around my waist was also just something I happened to find next to this abandoned truck. And there it was -- the 'Rambo look' was created before your very eyes!"
