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.
As of 2015 and due to this film, Sylvester Stallone remains (alongside Charles Chaplin) the only other person in film history to have been the sole writer of an original screenplay, to have starred in the leading role for the same film and to have been nominated for Oscars for both.

Come on, Spider!
In the final fight, just before we see the sign for Round 13, there is a shot of Rocky in a clinch looking fairly unmarked even though the previous rounds had shown him already very bloodied.
Butkus the dog is credited as "Butkus Stallone".
