But to beat me, he’ll have to kill me. And to kill me… he’ll have to have the heart to stand in front of me.

Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone)

Historically linked to the city of Philadelphia, where it all began, the character of Rocky Balboa becomes rich at the end of the second part of the saga. He then left the slums and bought a mansion on the edge of the city centre. A house actually located in Los Angeles, on Fremont Place, near the MGM, the emblematic studio of the franchise. A convenient choice for Sylvester Stallone, whose Rocky IV almost totally abandons Philadelphia. It is indeed the only part of the saga, Creed and Creed II included, not to include any scene attached to the famous steps of the city museum.

When the time came to choose the house where Rocky would live in the fourth episode, Sylvester Stallone opted for 56 Fremont Place, where many series had already been filmed. Perfectly adapted to accommodate a large logistical operation, the premises are very luxurious and totally reflect Rocky’s wealth, now on the roof of the world. The walls of the house, immaculate white, contrast perfectly with the dull grey walls of the apartment Rocky and Adrian occupied in Philadelphia. A house that the champion will have to leave to fly to Russia to face Ivan Drago.
