This one has been a very frequent request, but two things stood in the way: (1) The iconic image of the movie is Stallone hanging by his fingers from something, and of course he lives, so what to do? and (2) I hadn't seen the movie, and wasn't interested in doing so. James Rice again to the rescue with the specific suggestion for today's strip, i.e. the girl in the very beginning of the movie (WHO OBVIOUSLY DID NOT CLIMB THE ROCK TO GET THERE, SILLY HOLLYWOOD).

If you've seen the movie, you know what happens to her. If you haven't, you can watch the first ten minutes on YouTube. If you don't feel like it, you can look at this cartoon... and kind of guess.

There is only one true climbing movie and that's 1951's "Lost Continent" with Cesar Romero. There's a MST3K version of it.
75% of the movie is the characters climbing up or down the same 3 prop-mountain-sides.

Hahah...awesome. It's actually a pretty entertaining movie. And about as thought-provoking as a Stallone movie can be.
