After we watched Rocky Balboa and Apollo Creed beat the snot out of one-another, we were delighted to host the film’s Oscar-winning director, John G. Avildsen, for a Q&A. Avildsen sat down with our own John Woods and discussed how they made the boxing look real (a 32-page “ballet” written by Stallone), and how some of the film’s best quiet moments came about because they were cheap to shoot.
