SneezyMay 20 02:21 pm JSTthey moved the statue from the top of the stair to the right hand side at ground level a number of years ago. I guess the Art Museum wanted to assert itself. It is easy to find, however, and looks nice where they put it.

Also easier for fans of Rocky who have trouble going up or down stairs to get to, I suppose.

And you can chant the classic theme song associated with the classic film.

Da da da-da-da da-da-da da-da-da da-da-da! Gonna fly now!!!!!!!

That's classic entertainment!

Too bad Hollywood is incapable of making great movies anymore.

This isn't true.

Too bad Hollywood is incapable of making great movies anymore.

It's just take any old classic, doll it up with tired 'modern' references, PC/New Age trappings, boorish vulgar 'jokes' and remake/remodel/recycle/rinse/repeat/bastardization. Rubbish!

Toasted HereticMay 17 03:01 pm JSTIt was a movie; do people think the character was a real human?

Should have seen the red tops when Deirdre Barlow/Rachid was sent to jail...

But yes, it was a movie and a great one at that.

America needed a boost like that great movie. Bicentennial, Vietnam War finally over, sucky economy. This was how America became great, not by fascistic hatred. And Rocky was a son of Hungarian immigrants.

Too bad the article isn't about the art museum instead. It's fabulous and Joao could have spent a week at least discovering all the incredible art treasures inside. Did some grad study at West Chester Univ. long ago. Nice school. But if I remember correctly, the statue was in a different location last time I was there.
