Another incredibly rare shot. Slowly fading away. From ROCKY 4 … I remember this day when Drago a.k.a.Dolph Lundgren Was pounding away at my body. Very strong individual. This was definitely one the toughest physical experiences of my life, especially when you’re Directing at the same time. But the end result was worth it and I love and thank everyone involved in making this amazing experience possible …Now go out and see Creed 2 this Thanksgiving for another amazing experience!Keep punching , my friends. @mgm_studios # #creed2 @dolphlundgren #rockybalboa1976

Very interesting photo… Rocky was the first time a local Cameraman and inventor named Garrett Brown Extensively used a Camera called the STEADY CAM Which TOTALLY revolutionized the film industry and is used in 90% of every film and TV show made today !!! It was a minor miracle that he just happen to live in Philadelphia. All those scenes of me running freely and finally up the steps Without a single bump… The cameraman, Garrett Brown , who Was 6 foot seven , ran up the steps as fast as me , but almost sideways while looking at a monitor!Could not have been done with conventional equipment…. This little movie was only made in 26 and a half days, and Would’ve been absolutely impossible without Mr. Brown and his amazing invention!
