    Nice porn 'stache, Gene!

    But seriously, this is pretty cool to watch. Really nostalgic. Of course, Ebert liked the movie more than Siskel did.

    In one early draft of the script, the ending has Rocky getting paid by the mob to take a dive. He uses the money to buy Adrian her own pet shop. :wtf:

    Also, Apollo was Jamaican :wtf:

    I remember seeing Stallone being interviewed on the red carpet at The Oscars the year the movie came out.

    He said he made about 75 grand for the movie so far, and he was wearing a rented tuxedo.

    Sylvester Stallone took his real-life leading ladies on a Wednesday evening stroll after dining on French fare at Brasserie des Art restaurant in Saint-Tropez.

    The 68-year-old Italian stallion beamed as he escorted wife Jennifer Flavin and their daughters Sistine, 16 - who linked arms with a gal pal - and Sophia, who turns 18 next month.
