I don’t know why I have such an affinity for the movie Rocky. There is something unique about the time period of the late 70′s in Philadelphia — the locations, the way the scenes were shot, the clothing, the characters and I absolutely love the score by Bill Conti (yes the theme song, but my favorites are actually the slower pieces through out the movie). As a kid I grew up watching this film so I am sure there is a level of hidden sentiment that holds value with this movie.
By the way, did you know that Rocky was written by Sylvester Stallone? The American dream… Rocky.
