Produced by and starring Frank Sinatra, the 1980 film The First Deadly Sin was one of Bruce Willis' first acting ventures after his stint working as a private investigator (you'd better believe that Moonlighting wasn't pure fiction). His unbilled role in First Deadly Sin was as "man entering diner as Delaney leaves," which, unlikely as it was to win him any lifetime-achievement awards on that gig alone, opened the door for more prestigious jobs like "Extra" in A Guru Comes and "Courtroom Observer" in The Verdict. Finally, he earned his big break with the romantic comedy Blind Date, a movie so bad that even Madonna and Sean Penn turned it down.
