AvildsenScreenplay by: Sylvester Stallone His whole life was a million-to-one shot. A small time boxer gets a once in a lifetime chance to fight the heavyweight champ in a bout in which he strives to go the distance for his self-respect. Rocky Balboa is a small-time boxer who lives in an apartment in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and his career has so far not gotten off the canvas. Rocky earns a living by collecting debts for a loan shark named Gazzo, but Gazzo doesn't think Rocky has the viciousness it takes to beat up deadbeats. Rocky still boxes every once in a while to keep his boxing skills sharp, and his ex-trainer, Mickey, believes he could've made it to the top if he was willing to work for it. Rocky, goes to a pet store that sells pet supplies, and this is where he meets a young woman named Adrian, who is extremely shy, with no ability to talk to men. Rocky befriends her. Adrain later surprised Rocky with a dog from the pet shop that Rocky had befriended. Adrian's brother Paulie, who works for a meat packing company, is thrilled that someone has become interested in Adrian, and Adrian spends Thanksgiving with Rocky. Later, they go to Rocky's apartment, where Adrian explains that she has never been in a man's apartment before. Rocky sets her mind at ease, and they become lovers. Current world heavyweight boxing champion Apollo Creed comes up with the idea of giving an unknown a shot at the title. Apollo checks out the Philadelphia boxing scene, and chooses Rocky. Fight promoter Jergens gets things in gear, and Rocky starts training with Mickey. After a lot of training, Rocky is ready for the match, and he wants to prove that he can go the distance with Apollo.andalso promotes: Rocky II Screenplay by and Director:Sylvester StalloneWriter:The Rematch Of The Century Rocky struggles in family life after his bout with Apollo Creed, while the embarrassed champ insistently goads him to accept a challenge for a rematch. In the aftermath of his celebrated match with World Heavyweight Champion Apollo Creed, Rocky Balboa enjoys his success, and the money he earned from the match, which was declared a draw, and the heavyweight championship didn't change hands. He marries his fiancee Adrian, buys her an expensive fox fur, a sports car for himself, and a large new home. When a projected stint in TV commercials fails because he is unable to remember his lines and cannot read the 'dummy boards' being held for him, an embarrassed Rocky is forced to work for the meat packing company that Adrian's brother Paulie works for. When Rocky later gets laid off from the meat packing company, Adrian, who is now pregnant, tries to support them by continuing to work in the pet shop. Rocky believes he has no future as a boxer and accepts a menial job at the gym run by his former trainer Mickey. Apollo, angered by repeated taunts that his fight with Rocky was fixed, is eager for a high-profile rematch with Rocky to prove that the match was a fluke. Adrian is against it, and doctors have warned Rocky that with his injured eye, another fight could seriously damage his eyesight. With the family resources declining and his pride wounded, Rocky decides that fighting is all he knows how to do, and he makes the decision to get back in the ring with Apollo. Adrian's lack of support affects Rocky's training, much to Mickey's dismay. When Adrian lapses into a coma after giving birth to a baby boy named Rocky Balboa Jr, Rocky stops training. After Adrian later emerges from the coma and tells Rocky to beat Apollo, Rocky resumes his training. Adrian's love for Rocky is selfless, and Rocky, who feels the same way, is determined to win the title from Apollo this time. The entire cast included: Sylvester Stallone...

This is part of our in-store inventory from our shop which is has been located in the heart of Hollywood where we have been in business for OVER40 years!MORE INFO ON SYLVESTER STALLONE: Athletically built, dark haired US actor / screenwriter / director of European parentage may never be mentioned by old school film critics in the same breath as say, Richard Burton or Alec Guinness, however movie fans world wide have been flocking to see Stallone's films for over 30 years, making "Sly" one of Hollywoods biggest ever box office draw cards.Born on July 6th, 1946 in New York's gritty "Hells Kitchen", the young Stallone attended the American College of Switzerland and the University of Miami eventually obtaining a BA degree. Initially, he struggled in small parts in films such as the soft core The Party at Kitty and Stud's (1970), the thriller Klute (1971) and the comedy Bananas (1971). However, he got a crucial career break alongside fellow young actor Henry Winkler sharing lead billing in the effectively written teen gang film _Lord's of Flatbush, The (1974). Further film & TV roles followed, although most of them in uninspiring productions, except for the opportunity to play a megalomaniac, bloodthirsty race driver named "Machine Gun Joe Viterbo" in the Roger Corman produced Death Race 2000 (1975). However, Stallone was also keen to be recognized as a screenwriter, not just an actor, and inspired by the 1975 Muhammad Ali - Chuck Wepner fight in Cleveland, Stallone wrote a film script about a nobody fighter given the "million to one opportunity" to challenge for the heavyweight title. Rocky (1976) became the stuff of cinematic legends, scoring ten Academy Award nominations, winning the Best Picture Award of 1976 and triggering one of the most financially successful movie franchises in history ! Whilst full credit is wholly deserved by Stallone, he was duly supported by tremendous acting from fellow cast members Talia Shire, Burgess Meredith and Burt Young and director John G. Avildsen gave the film an emotive, earthy appeal from start to finish. Stallone had truly arrived on his terms, and offers poured in from various studio's eager to secure Hollywoods hottest new star.Stallone followed Rocky (1976) with F.I.S.T (1978), loosely based on the life of Teamsters boss, "Jimmy Hoffa", and Paradise Alley (1978), before pulling on the boxing gloves again to resurrect "Rocky Balboa" in the sequel Rocky II (1979). The second outing for the "Italian Stallion" wasn't as powerful or successful as the the first "Rocky", however it still produced strong box office. Subsequent films Nighthawks (1981) and Victory (1981) failed to ignite with audiences, so Stallone was once again lured back to familiar territory with Rocky III (1982) and a fearsome opponent in "Clubber Lang" played by muscular ex-bodyguard Mr. T. The third "Rocky" installment far outperformed the first sequel in box office takings, however Stallone was to "retire" his prize fighter for a couple of years as another mega-franchise was about to be commence for the busy actor.The character of Green Beret "John Rambo" was the creation of Canadian born writer David Morrell and his novel was adapted to the screen with Stallone in the lead role in First Blood (1982) also starring Richard Crenna and Brian Dennehy. The movie was a surprise hit that polarized audiences because of its commentary about the Vietnam war, that was still relatively fresh in the American public's psyche. Political viewpoints aside, the film was a world wide smash and a sequel soon followed with Rambo: First Blood Part II (1985) which drew even stronger criticism from several quarters due to the films plot line about American MIA's allegedly being held in Vietnam. But they say there is no such thing as bad publicity, and "John Rambo's" second adventure was a major money spinner for Stallone and cemented him as one of the top male stars of the 1980s. Riding a wave of amazing popularity, Stallone called on old sparring partner, "Rocky Balboa" to climb back into the ring to defend US pride against Soviet threat's in the form of a towering Russian boxer named "Ivan Drago" played by mono-syllabic Dolph Lundgren in Rocky IV (1985). The fourth outing was somewhat controversial with "Rocky" fans as violence levels seemed excessive over previous "Rocky" films, especially with the savage beating suffered by "Apollo Creed" aka Carl Weathers at the hands of the unstoppable "Siberian Express".Stallone continued forward with a slew of "macho character" themed films that met with a mixed reception from his fans. Cobra (1986) was a clumsy mess, Over the Top (1987) was equally mediocre, Rambo III (1988) saw Rambo take on the Russians in Afghanistan, and cop buddy film Tango & Cash (1989) just didn't quite hit the mark, although it did feature a top notch cast and there was chemistry between Stallone and co-star Kurt Russell.Philadelphia's favorite "mythical" boxer moved out of the shadows for his fifth screen outing in Rocky V (1990) tackling "Tommy Machine Gunn" aka Tommy Morrison real life heavy weight fighter and the great nephew of screen legend John Wayne,...."Sly" quickly followed with the lukewarm comedy Oscar (1991), the painfully unfunny Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot (1992), the futuristic action of Demolition Man (1993) and the comic book inspired Judge
