In an era where Midnight Cowboy, Network, Bonnie and Clyde, Chinatown, and Taxi Driver were showing you the dark, gritty side of American life, Rocky showed America that the good guys can win again. The Italian Stallion is a national icon.
It's hard to pick my favorite scenes from the movie. I love the chemistry between Rocky and Adrian (Shire). When he's talking to door and she finally comes out and then stops to look in the mirror. It's a thing of beauty. <a href="http://www.vriendinnengezocht.net">vriendinnen</a>
