The making of Lords of Flatbush

Thirty-five years ago this summer marks the production of The Lords of Flatbush.

In his new book, The Making of The Lords of Flatbush, writer/producer/director Stephen Verona chronicles the mini-classic film from inspiration to perspiration to final reward. The book reveals how everyone involved went on to become legends in their fields: from Sylvester Stallone who went on to become Rocky to Henry Winkler who became the Fonz.

This film started a cultural revolution with the TV shows that it inspired. Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley and Welcome Back Kotter all found their inspiration in Flatbush. For dollar invested to dollar returned, The Lords of Flatbush was one of the biggest money-making films of all time. Get the story behind one of Sly’s earliest, and greatest movies.
