In the scene where Rocky is flying to New York from Chicago, the picture of the plane in flight is reversed (see the airline name in backward lettering). It was probably intentional so that the plane would be heading from left to right. That is the way people would imagine the plane heading, since that's the direction on a map. See more »

How many chances do we get to watch Paul Newman overact? His over-the-top performance as an Italian-American boxing champ from New York City is lots of fun to watch. He turn Graziano into a poor man's Terry Malloy. Nice, albeit brief, performance by Sal Mineo as well, as Rocky's running buddy. Worth a look!
