Corrected entry: Creeds promotor is referred to as Miles Jergens all through the film, but when he meets Rocky in his office to offer him the fight, he introduces himself as George Jergens.

Correction: Miles is his nickname.

Correction: He wrote the first draft in 4 days.

Corrected entry: When Micky comes up to ask Rocky if he can manage him he picks darts from his door in his flat and throws them at the door. It shows there are two darts and then when Micky leaves it shows that there are three.

Correction: If you look very closely, there are actually three. One of the darts is directly behind the other, but you can see by the shadow and by the points that there are three.

Corrected entry: When Adrian is in Rocky's apartment, he tells her that he no longer has a phone. Several scenes later when Rocky confronts Paulie for bringing reporters to the meat company, he tells Paulie that he should have called him first or left a message.

Correction: Rocky also demonstrates that he can "call" Paulie by yelling out his window. Rocky also gets messages at Mickey's gym, much to Mickey's chagrin at not being Rocky's messenger service.


Corrected entry: In the scene where Mickey goes to Rocky's apartment to offer his services as manager, Mickey climbs the stairs and walks up to Rocky's door. The apartment number is on the outside of the door. The scene cuts to Rocky opening the door from inside the apartment. There is no longer an apartment number on the door.

Correction: This is not an error, the door that Rocky opens in that scene is the bathroom door inside of the apartment, not the front door to the apartment.

The continuity error mentioned above is true. This happens before the bathroom door scene. When Mickey knocks on his door there is a number 2 there. Then 5 seconds later when you see that same front door it has no number on it.

Corrected entry: Just before Rocky goes for an early morning training run, he drinks a cup full of raw eggs. No sportsman will ever eat just before a strenuous exercise. Rocky was involved in boxing for over 10 years and he should have known better.

Correction: Time could have passed between him drinking the eggs and the running.

Correction: Standing southpaw whilst boxing doesn't automatically mean you are left handed for writing as well. Some people are ambidextrous.


Other mistake: About half way through the movie, Adrian gives Rocky a dog (Butkus). The second time Rocky goes to the meatpacking plant, the dog is with him when he walks in, but he walks out alone and the dog is not seen again in this movie.

Suggested correction: How is this a mistake? Rocky could easily have left with the dog on another occasion. It's like saying, sometimes Rocky is shown in a location but it's never shown how he got there. That isn't a mistake, it's just what happens in films. Also, the dog not being seen again is irrelevant.

Trivia: During the scene before the fight, where Rocky enters the ring and sees the 2 portraits of him and Apollo, the error on Rocky's shorts was an actual error made by the art crew, and Sylvester Stallone rewrote the scene when he saw this mistake.

More trivia for Rocky

Question: In the movie Rocky, porno actress Jean Jennings is listed in the credits on numerous websites, but I can't place or recall her in the film. According to information and bio info on her, she was married to Joe Spinell, who played Rocky's friend and employer in the film. Was she in Rocky? If so, in what scene?

Answer: If she was in Rocky, she would have been a minor extra because I've never seen her listed in any credits for Rocky on any websites, including Jean Jennings' IMDB page.
