Vintage “Rocky” Novel by Julia Sorel (1977)
Out of stock
A LOVE STORY ABOUT THE WORLD’S HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP
Vintage 1977 paperback edition (Second Special Printing) of the novelization of the original “Rocky”, written by Julia Sorel, based on Sylvester Stallone’s screenplay.
The “Rocky” series novels, which borrow heavily from the production-used scripts from the movies, offer some cool insights into scenes that ultimately did not make the final cut. Little details like Adrian and Paulie’s original last name – Klein – and the name of Adrian’s pet shop – Animal Town Pet Shop, are just some of the interesting bits in this novel. Variations on scenes, like Rocky and Adrian’s first date at the ice skating rink, which includes additional dialogue as well as fellow skaters in the rink, as well as an alternative and much more vulgar turn of Little Marie’s famous “Screw you, creepo” line are revealed.
138-page paperback book is in fair condition, much wear to front and back covers, some foxing on interior covers.
