Rocky clips

The 1976 original Rocky was on TV last night. I’ll let the clips speak for themselves other than to say that these films are about much more than just boxing.

The first film  surprises me every time; sadly, IV is the only one I know from beginning to end. Anyone else a big fan? Would be nice to watch some of the DVDs as I’ve only seen old VHS copies and TV airings.
