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.
In the original script, Gazzo has his bodyguard bet 3,000 dollars on Rocky in the Apollo Creed fight.
Club fight attendee:
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.
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.
$5,000,000 (USA) (5 December 1976)
