With Independence day lurking around the corner, Movie Moles Jan Haaken and Denise Morris look back at the 1976 film Rocky. The first in a long line of films, Rocky was decorated with praise and awards and continues to inspire audiences as it taps into "our wish to have the best rescued from depravity..." Jan and Denise also discuss the themes in the film that perpetuate mythologies linking individualism and loyalty to the prevailing system in our so-called land of opportunity.
