  • The two characters of Rocky and Adrian form a relationship far more sweet and tender than a story of a boxer would suggest

      In Sylveter Stallone’s urban fairy-tale, the hero does not yearn for fame or to even win. His sights are set on the realistic goal of just surviving and not humiliating himself in the process. It is an allegory for life and also one of the most romantic films ever made.

      The most touching


      aspects of the romance involves the down and out fighter’s courtship of wallflower Adrian, who’s terrible shyness is made worse by the constant bullying of her brother. The two characters of Rocky and Adrian form a relationship far more sweet and tender than a story of a boxer would suggest. Talia Shire is perfectly cast as Adrian. Rocky, being an independent film Shire was left up to creating her character’s wardrobe, borrowing a pair of glasses from her eye doctor. Stallone makes the gentlest of giants and someone we care about completely.

      That Rocky was independently made inspired some great choices we learn from director ...

      John Avildsen on the DVD commentary: Rocky’s shorts were not supposed to be the wrong color on the poster but that they were added to the character’s underdog status. More comically, Stallone reveals in video commentary that his character was supposed to make the iconic run up the stairs with his dog
      Butkus, but since the dog weighed 100 pounds that idea was scraped.

      Rocky is such a great film and it is one that I will spend the years watching more and more of, because it inspires us at the same time it teaches us what is important and the goals we should aspire to.
