November 21st 1976, Rocky, starring Sylvester Stallone as the underdog prize-fighter Rocky Balboa, debuts in New York City. The movie, which opened in theatres across the United States on December 3, 1976, was a huge box-office hit and received 10 Academy Award nominations, including Best Actor and Best Original Screenplay for the then-little known Stallone. Rocky ultimately took home three Oscars, including one for Best Picture, and made Stallone one of the biggest stars in Hollywood.




Produced on a shoestring budget, the film told the story of Rocky Balboa, a small-time, down-on-his-luck Philadelphia boxer who works as a debt collector for a loan shark before getting a shot at the world heavyweight championship. Rocky includes such memorable lines as "Yo, Adrian!" (directed at Rocky's love interest, played by Talia Shire) and "You're gonna eat lightning, you're gonna crap thunder," as well as the now-iconic scene in which Rocky takes a training run up and down the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art as the movie's theme song, "Gonna Fly Now," plays. Stallone went on to write and star in five more Rocky movies: Rocky II (1979), Rocky III (1982), Rocky IV (1985), Rocky V (1990) and Rocky Balboa (2006).
