- The iconic shot of Rocky running up the steps of Philadelphia Art Museum came about because of Steadicam inventor 加勒特·布朗. Brown, who was from Philadelphia, was getting ready to fly to Los Angeles to try to sell his newly invented Steadicam device. He had shot some test footage following people around corridors and from room to room, but he wanted to be able to shoot something that even the most experienced filmmakers would look at and wonder how he did it. He came up with the idea for his girlfriend to run up and down the museum steps while he followed close behind her. Using this footage, Brown sold the camera on his first day in Los Angeles and, several months later, John G. Avildsen, who was prepping Rocky, saw the footage and felt that a similar type of shot would be perfect for the film. As such, Avildsen hired Brown and the Steadicam, and as Brown explains, several months after he had run up the steps filming his girlfriend, he was running back up the steps filming 西尔维斯特·史泰龙.
- Rocky's dog Butkus was actually 西尔维斯特·史泰龙's dog in real life.
- After producers 艾文·温克勒 and 罗伯特·恰托夫 became interested in the script, they offered 西尔维斯特·史泰龙 an unprecedented $350,000 for the rights. He had $106 in the bank, no car, and was trying to sell his dog because he couldn't afford to feed it, but he refused to sell unless they agreed to allow him to star in the film. They agreed, on the condition that Stallone continue to work as a writer without a fee, and that he work as an actor for scale. After Winkler and Chartoff purchased the film, they took it to "United Artists," who envisioned a budget of $2 million with an established star, particularly 罗伯特·雷德福, 瑞安·奥尼尔, 伯特·雷诺兹, or 詹姆斯·肯恩. When Winkler and Chartoff told United Artists that they could only get the screenplay if Stallone starred, "United Artists" cut the budget to $1 million, and had Chartoff and Winkler sign agreements that they would be personally liable if the film went over budget. The final cost was $1.1 million. Chartoff and Winkler mortgaged their houses for the last $100,000.
