ET Flashback '86: Ralph Macchio


Wax on, wax off! Ralph Macchio is back on top as a frontrunner on this season's "Dancing with the Stars," and we're flashing back to the '80s on the set of 'The Karate Kid, Part II'!

In 'The Karate Kid, Part II,' Ralph's character Daniel travels to Japan with his mentor, Mr. Miyagi (Pat Morita), where he falls for a beautiful Japanese girl, played by Tamlyn Tomita.

"I didn't expect it to be that big of a money-making film as it was," says Ralph of the first film's success. "You wonder if you're making something special, or if you're just doing a bad version of something that's been made already."
