It's the film that inspired a nation - and won the 1976 Best Picture Oscar®. Rocky (Sylvester Stallone) is a Philadelphia club fighter who seems to be going nowhere. But when a stroke of fate puts him in a ring with the world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers), Rocky knows that it's his one shot at the big time - a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to "go the distance" and come out a winner! Audiences and critics alike cheered this American success story of an "everyman" triumphing over all odds.
