Happy Birthday Rocky


I’m a movie nut and a Rocky Balboa fan. Yep, got’em all. Rocky and all six sequels that looked at all new storylines are part of my private video collection.

If you read, “Losing History”, the previous post in this blog (“Near the Finish Line”), you’ve already considered whether Rocky is an important part of our American culture.

Most critics say he is, and today he celebrated his capture of the populace on November 21, 1976, with his 40th birthday party. “Rocky” earned $117 Million in 1976 and was the highest grossing movie of the year.

Happy birthday, Rock!
