Stallone has said he was broke and homeless when he did The Party at Kitty and Stud's (later renamed The Italian Stallion), and the $200 he was paid for it kept him from sleeping in a bus station. The film seems to have been softcore in its original version, but in subsequent years, those who wanted to profit from it have billed it as hardcore and even inserted hardcore scenes.
