Rambo: First Blood

"One war against one man."

When former Green Beret John Rambo is harassed by local law enforcement and arrested for vagrancy, the Vietnam vet snaps, runs for the hills and rat-a-tat-tats his way into the action-movie hall of fame. Hounded by a relentless sheriff, Rambo employs heavy-handed guerilla tactics to shake the cops off his tail.

Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • The FIELDS Department Store shown in the movie is actually a British Columbia chain, at that time owned by Zellers, which was part of HBC (Hudson's Bay Company).
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): When Rambo and Trautman are in the police station at the end of the movie. Rambo is reminiscing about Vegas and the "f---ing car" he stated that it was a "Red '58 Camaro". Chevrolet did not produce the Camaro until 1966, the first model year being the 1967.
  • (At 1:03.41) When Rambo is believed to have been killed in mine attack by the National Guardsmen, Teasle returns to his office. Behind him, you can clearly see a display case that displays three medals. The three medals, from right to left, are: the Silver Star, The Purple Heart, and the Army Distinguished Service Cross Medals. These indicate Teasle was a highly decorated Korean War hero as both the Silver Star and ADSC are awarded for extreme valor and bravery in enemy combat. The subtext of the book was a battle of different war tactics, for this reason; this is underplayed in the film.
  • James Garner turned down the lead role. A veteran of the Korean war with two Purple Hearts, Garner did not want to play a man who comes home from war and starts fighting cops.
