a 1976 sports drama the tells the story of Rocky Balboa an uneducated but kind heart debt collector for a loan shark in Philadelphia who later gets a shot at the World Heacyweight Championship. Sylvester Stallone co-wrote the script and starred as Rocky. The movie was so successful it's spawned five sequels...so far!
You know the movie Rocky, I’m sure. You know Sylvester Stallone. But do you know how the film and actor got their start? Did you know that Sly Stallone actually had such little money that he had to sell his dog for $25? The heartbreaking tale has a well-known happy ending (Stallone is a famous actor, producer, and director now of course) but the story is an important one.
