I found a really inspirational interview with Sly Stallone, talking about the creation of Rocky. It goes to show how even those who are ultra successful had to start from really meagre beginnings and not only that, they still encounter setbacks and unexpected twists along the way. smile.gif

Yeah, it's a great example of somebody having something they believe in.. is tempted to compromise for money but doesn't, even though it's taking a risk. I love it smile.gif

Great story! I'll have to watch the rest of that series. There is a lot of cool interviews with Sly on the Rocky Balboa bonus dvd.

I think Sly wrote and directed most of the Rocky series. I believe he had a heavy hand in writing the Rambo series too. What a genius.
