The acting is simply tremendous - Stallone is quality and convincing as the tough, simple and vulnerable Rocky, but for me Talia Shire is the standout in her role as Adrian, SHe captures the character perfectly and uses silence more effectively that words, it really is incredible.

i think one of my favorite scenes is when Mick shows up at Rocky's door offering to train him after he turned him down before, and the way Rocky shouts him down the street after.
