Trivia

Not the first time that a character in a biopic has a meta moment where he watches himself in a screen adaptation of his life. Following the success of The Jolson Story (1946), the sequel Jolson Sings Again (1949) included a plot thread where Al Jolson is involved with a Hollywood biopic about him. Similarly, in the Doris Day comedy spy caper Caprice (1967), Day's character goes to the cinema to watch a film called Caprice (1967) starring Doris Day. See more »

In a nutshell about how the first film came to be.
22 May 2001 | by (Auburn, Me) – See all my reviews

Did any of the "Rocky" sequels truly match the first one? Of course not. This could be said of this The Final Chapter and Walking Tall Part Two as well. A substantial portion of this picture is about how Buford Pusser becomes nationally known as a result of the original film.
