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.
Originally, real life boxer Kenny Norton was offered the role of Apollo Creed, but because he was 230 pounds, it was felt he would dwarf Stallone too much, and a smaller man was sought.

Come on, Spider!
After the announcer finishes announcing the beginning of the fight, the microphone rises back up to the ceiling. As it rises, it hits the camera and shakes it.
Butkus the dog is credited as "Butkus Stallone".
