Original set of 7 lobby cards, as used in theaters to advertise and promote the movie titled Rocky from 1976.
This lobby card set is in NEAR MINT condition from France, size: 8.25x10.5 inch - 21x27 cm French Lobby Card Set.


Description, condition and details:
We bought this set as is with 7 cards and don't know for sure if this set is missing 1 or more cards. Boxoffice smash about a young man from the slums of Philadelphia who dreams of becoming a boxing champion. Stallone plays Rocky, the underdog hoping to win fame and self-respect. Rags-to-riches story seems to parallel Stallone's life; he had been previously virtually unknown before this movie. Intense portrayal of the American Dream. One of the greatest movies of all time.

Movie lobby cards are also known as Photobustas or Fotobusta/Fotobuste in Italy, as Fotos in Spain, as Kino Aushangfotos or Photosatz/Fotosätze/Lobby Sätze or Kinophotos in Germany and as Photos or Photos d'Exploitation Cinema in France.

Please check out our film posters to see if we also have Rocky movie posters.

Plot, Summary, Synopsis, Story, Script, Novel:
Rocky Balboa is a small-time boxer who lives in an apartment in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and his career has so far not gotten off the canvas. Rocky earns a living by collecting debts for a loan shark named Gazzo, but Gazzo doesn't think Rocky has the viciousness it takes to beat up deadbeats. Rocky still boxes every once in a while to keep his boxing skills sharp, and his ex-trainer, Mickey, believes he could've made it to the top if he was willing to work for it. Rocky, goes to a pet store that sells pet supplies, and this is where he meets a young woman named Adrian, who is extremely shy, with no ability to talk to men. Rocky befriends her. Adrain later surprised Rocky with a dog from the pet shop that Rocky had befriended. Adrian's brother Paulie, who works for a meat packing company, is thrilled that someone has become interested in Adrian, and Adrian spends Thanksgiving with Rocky. Later, they go to Rocky's apartment, where Adrian explains that she has never been in a man's apartment before. Rocky sets her mind at ease, and they become lovers. Current world heavyweight boxing champion Apollo Creed comes up with the idea of giving an unknown a shot at the title. Apollo checks out the Philadelphia boxing scene, and chooses Rocky. Fight promoter Jergens gets things in gear, and Rocky starts training with Mickey. After a lot of training, Rocky is ready for the match, and he wants to prove that he can go the distance with Apollo.
