Who is Rocky Balboa?

Rocky is a character inspired by the famous boxer Chuck Wepner.

The character Rocky Balboa was born in Philadelphia on July 6, 1945. He was born into a Roman Catholic Italian-American family.

Rocky is played by Sylvester Stallone, who has also starred in First blood, Rambo, The Expendables and Creed 1 & 2

When was Rocky made?

The movie started November 21, 1976, by the director John G Avildsen who has also directed Karate Kid, The Power of One, and The Formula.

The first movie is about a boxer from Philadelphia who is arbitrarily chosen to dominate the heavyweight championship going against Apollo.

What is the Rocky theme song?

Remember the scene when Rocky is so determined to win the championship he starts training. Of course, he needs music inspiration so Bill Conti composed the theme song ” Gonna Fly Now” that was later modified with lyrics by Carol Connors and Alyn Robbins.

What do Harvest students feel when they hear it?

There are many but many responses here are some. One by Liam  ” Happy because it’s a great movie” and others may not agree like Josh who plainly answered “Bored”

Some bring them heartwarming memories, like Mrs.Collison who said,  “It is a memory for me because I was in a band in high school and we played it during the halftime show and it makes me feel nostalgic”

Some bring a memory but in a very different way. “It makes me remember my brother who’d make me watch it so many times which was so annoying.”

Some who never heard of it or seen the movie like Brooklyn say, ” This is a great song! I feel powerful like I did work out and happy” and Julia in short which all most everybody said, “Empowered”.
