The movie that made Sylvester Stallone a star, “Rocky” tells the story of Philadelphia boxer Rocky Balboa and his pursuit of the heavyweight championship. Rocky’s rival in the film is Apollo Creed, but over the course of three sequels, the one-time enemies form a strong bond through mutual respect. In later movies, Rocky goes on to train Creed’s son, played by Michael B. Jordan.
