Rocky | 40th Anniversary

1976 American Film | Directed By John G. Avildsen

Written By & Starring Sylvester Stallone

Supporting Cast: Talia Shire, Burgess Meredith, Burt Young, Joe Spinnell, Carl Weathers

One of the best movies ever made, Rocky is very much more than just a boxing movie. It’s a movie about the unbreakable human spirit, determination, and the will to “go the distance.” Rocky (Stallone) is a second rate club-fighter and a debt collector for a loan shark (Joe Spinnell). He becomes involved with a shy girl working in a petshop named Adrian (Talia Shire), and also becomes friends with her brother Paulie (Burt Young).

Rocky’s life really isn’t anything of interest – until the World Heavyweight Champion Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) gives him an unexpected shot at the title. An old boxer-turned-trainer named Mick (Burgess Meredith) offers to be Rocky’s manager.

Although the whole film is outstanding, what follows are some of the greatest and most memorable movie moments of all time. Rocky striving to go the distance in the training scene, the final fight, and the closing moments of the film are so emotional and inspiring that they perfectly demonstrate the human spirit and can bring out the will to win in anybody. Add to this an excellent music score and you have a classic and unforgettable movie. Without a doubt deserved the Best Picture award in 1976. Exceptional performances by all the cast members, notably Burgess Meredith and Sylvester Stallone.
