Famous people you would never guess are Italian-American

Did you know that Frank Sinatra is the most famous Italian-American.

Can you guess the sixth most famous Italian-American and what influence they had on movies? These people have changed our lives. 

Frank Sinatra may not be someone you recognize or know but he is one who has shaped the course of American entertainment. Frank Sinatra had a big part to play in John F Kennedy’s campaign. He had many adventures with The Rat Pack, which made Las Vegas entertainment what it is now.  

Whenever you talk to the older generation about America’s favorite pastime-baseball- they will always name Joe DiMaggio. Joe was a baseball player in 1941 and he had a 56 game hitting streak and he became an American hero. When his career ended in 1951 New York Yankees, he had 9 world series titles and 3 MVP awards. 

“Sleep with the fishies” and “I made him an offer that he couldn’t refuse,” are quotes from which movie? You got it, The Godfather! The Godfather was written by Mario Puzo and was listed on The New York Times best seller list for 67 weeks. Did you know that Puzo also earned script credits for Superman and Superman 2?

Now this is what you have all been waiting for. An actor and screenwriter that was told he would never go anywhere. He was denied multiple times on his first screen writing script. Have you figured out who it is yet?

I will give you a hint. “It ain’t about how hard you hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.” Yep, you guessed it. It’s Sylvester Stallone in Rocky as Rocky Balboa. He also played in Rambo, The Expendables, and First blood.
