Four years ago we posted on the RockyBalboa sculpture that had been banished from the doors of the Philadelphia Museum of Art to the foot of the grand stairway leading up to it. A demotion perhaps but you can't keep Rocky down. The first movie may have opened back in 1976 but still the man is the centre of attention with a line of people waiting to be snapped in the Rocky pose.
Images: Top, Sylvester Stallone takes the pose in the first movie and the sculpture as seen as a prop in Rocky III outside the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Bottom, families pose with the statue where it stands today.
