Rocky II (1979)
The opening crowd shot of the boxing match attended by Lt. Cmdr. Block and Wilson is reused footage of the final fight scene of Rocky II. In addition both of the fighters and their corner men that are used for more close up shots filmed for this movie are dressed in exactly the same colored robes and uniforms as worn by Sylvester Stallone, Carl Weathers, Burgess Meredith and Tony Burton in Rocky II, along with matching floor canvas and ring rope covers used to match both film footage together seamlessly.
The Final Countdown (1980)
