The Best Movies You’ve Never Seen – Rocky
Go the distance! This week on The Best Movies You’ve Never Seen podcast we’re watching the Oscar-winning Rocky, written by and starring Sylvester Stallone.
Stallone famously wrote the script and refused to sell the script for big money – instead he insisted he play Rocky – the character reflected his own life – he was a down and out actor who needed a break.
So he wrote his story and set in the boxing world after watching Chuck Wepner go the distance with Muhammed Ali in 1975.
This is one of Stephen’s all-time favourite films and he’s seen it countless times while Trevor, who was born the year it was released, knew of Rocky but couldn’t tell you what happened in it.
Stephen has even done the Yo! Philly Rocky Tour with Rocky lookalike Mike Kunda.
We go through the memorable scenes and share some interesting facts, behind the scenes tidbits, trivia, fact v fiction and other things you don’t know about the film.
