Rocky Balboa, a small-time boxer, gets a supremely rare chance to fight heavy-weight champion Apollo Creed in a bout in which he strives to go the distance for his self-respect.
Included among the American Film Institute's 1998 list of the Top 100 Greatest American Movies.

Come on, Spider!
During the fight, Steadicam operator Garrett Brown and his assistant are visible at ringside several times in the wide shots. Brown can clearly be seen wearing a black and white stripped top.
The film opens with the title of the film scrolling from right to left underscored by music. However, instead of just doing the opening credits for the cast, Rocky is shown boxing. The rest of the credits appear later as Rocky is shown walking down a street, and this time there is nothing underscoring the credits.
