Lou and the hollywood bananas - wings of a dove

The actor also showed up on the big screen in Whatever Happened to Aunt Alice ? (1969), Little Big Man (1970), Death Warrant (1990) and Da Vinci's War (1993), that last one with his brother-in-law, Joey Travolta.

Meanwhile, his big screen reputation grew with critically acclaimed work in such comedies as "The Landlord" (1970) "The Skin Game"(1971) with James Garner, "Travels with My Aunt" (1972) and the film adaptation of the Tony Award-winning drama "The River Niger" (1975). A riveting performance as a drug-dealing cutthroat stalking Nick Nolte and Jacqueline Bisset in "The Deep" (1977) catapulted him to wider popularity, but the tough by-the-book drill sergeant in "An Officer and a Gentleman" (1982) won him a Best Supporting Oscar that consolidated his place in the Hollywood hierarchy.

1492’s Columbus, Michael Barnathan, Mark Radcliffe and Jenny Blum will produce with Howard. The production company and Howard are repped by WME, and Howard is managed by the Gotham Group.

Subsequent albums, such as 1977's When You Hear Lou, You've Heard It All yielded such hit singles as " Lady Love ". Other releases in the 1970s included the classic album Sit Down And Talk To Me .

The fact Lou returned to bodybuilding to compete in the 1992 IFBB Mr. Olympia in Helsinki, Finland, after 17 years away from the game, does much to underscore his amazing self-belief. Placing 12th at this contest, then returning the following year only to garner 10th at this same show - and an accompanying lesson in humility - before stating that he was just happy to prove to himself that he could once again be the best he could be under the circumstances, demonstrates the good sportsmanship and realistic outlook he possesses, further qualities that set the great Lou Ferrigno apart.
