Dolly Parton and Sylvester Stallone are two of the biggest names in Hollywood. They have starred in numerous movies and have gained a massive fan following over the years. However, there’s one movie that they starred in together that many people don’t know about.
The movie in question is ‘Rhinestone,’ which was released in 1984. The movie is a musical comedy that features Dolly Parton as a country singer named Jake Farris and Sylvester Stallone as a New York cab driver named Nick Martinelli.
In ‘Rhinestone,’ Jake Farris is challenged by a sleazy club owner, Freddie Ugo (played by Ron Leibman), to turn Nick into a country singer within two weeks. If she fails, she has to perform at his club for free for six months. As the story progresses, Nick struggles to adapt to country music while Jake tries her best to turn him into a star before their deadline.
The movie was directed by Bob Clark and produced by Howard Smith and Marvin Worth. The screenplay was written by Phil Alden Robinson, who later went on to direct movies like ‘Field of Dreams’ and ‘Sneakers.’
While ‘Rhinestone’ wasn’t a commercial or critical success, it remains one of Dolly Parton’s most memorable movies. The movie’s soundtrack features some of Dolly Parton’s most popular songs, including “Drinkenstein,” “Tennessee Homesick Blues,” and “God Won’t Get You.”
In conclusion, ‘Rhinestone’ was the movie that Dolly Parton starred in with Sylvester Stallone. It may not have been their most successful collaboration, but it remains an entertaining movie worth watching for fans of both actors.
