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.
This was the third movie in five years that Talia Shire was in that won Best Picture (The Godfather (1972) & The Godfather: Part II (1974) were the other two). Joe Spinell was also in these three films as well.

55 seconds into the first round, Rocky scores a knockdown and Apollo doesn't rise to his feet anywhere near the count of 10. If you count it out, it's more like 15-18, depending on how fast you count. Rocky wins in the first round.
Butkus the dog is credited as "Butkus Stallone".
