Avildsen, J. (Director). (1976). Rocky [Motion picture]. United States: Chartoff-Winkler Productions. Rocky Summary: This movie, produced in 1976, tells a rags to riches story of Rocky Balboa. Rocky, an uneducated but kind-hearted debt collector for a loan shark named Gazzo, is a small-time boxer who lives in an apartment in Philadelphia. Gazzo believes that Rocky does not have what it takes to beat up the deadbeats because he is not vicious enough, but Rocky still boxes every once in a while to keep his boxing skills sharp. But on the contrary, his old trainer, Mikey, believed he could have been the next big boxer if he would work for it. The current world heavyweight boxing champion chooses Rocky to fight with him for the big title. So Rocky trains with Mikey and proves he can go the distance with the current champion even though many doubted him. Evolution of Importance: This movie teaches that even when the world is telling you that you cannot do something or you will never succeed at what you do, you have to keep pushing for your dreams and prove them all wrong. This is the way to make your life and career the best it can be. I will keep this in mind throughout my upper division classes and life if I, or anyone else, is in a situation that resembles Rocky’s. It is probably not going to be with the same circumstances, but the main points will be the same. Berle, M. (2013). If opportunity doesn 't knock build a door. Retrieved from
