In a nutshell about how the first film came to be., 22 May 2001
Author: yenlo from Auburn, Me

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.
