Rocky

Sylvester Stallone was at his best, both physically and as an actor, in this inspiring drama about a Philadelphia boxer, who gets a shot at challenging a heavyweight champion. The film packed a one-two punch of major audience appeal and critical raves, winning three Academy Awards (including Best Picture) and making Sly a superstar.
