I don't recall seeing him in most of the films on the OP's list, which wouldn't be surprising for an extra. But he REALLY stands out in Bananas, where he [plays a thug that goes after Woody Allen's character in a New York Subway. You get a full-screen head-on shot of him that's hard to miss -- he's not some random face in the background.

When the movie came out in '72, nobody knew who Stallone was, so it was no big deal. But four years later, after the success of Rocky (with all those movie stills and posters with his face on them, besides the movie itself, of course), you couldn't miss him when they showed Bananas in revivals, and the audience always reacted when they saw him.
