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.
Frank Stallone, Sylvester Stallone's father, has a cameo playing the man who rings the opening bell of the Creed vs. Balboa fight. Sylvester's younger brother, Frank Stallone, also has a cameo playing the lead singer of the street band.

Come on, Spider!
After Rocky's fight against Spider Rico, his payment is winner's share: $65, less $15 for use of locker and corner man, $5 for use of shower and towel, and 7% tax. In the end, he gets a total of $40.55. However, 7% of $65 is $4.55, so subtracting that and the other deductions, he actually should have received $40.45, not $40.55. Spider Rico did receive the correct amount.
Butkus the dog is credited as "Butkus Stallone".
