THE STORY BEHIND THE REAL NECKLACE
“Dis is the favorite ting I have on dis earth,” Mickey tells the young Balboa in 1990′s Rocky V.
Featured prominently in the fifth Rocky installment, the necklace was given to Rocky by his beloved trainer, who had received it as a gift from boxing superstar Rocky Marciano.
Mick explains that the necklace was originally one of Marciano’s cuff links. Rocky later presents his prized possession to his son on the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The necklace can be seen earlier in the series, too. Stallone first wears it in Rocky III.
During the 1990 premiere of Rocky V, replicas of the necklace used in the movie were distrubuted briefly as promotional pieces to a lucky few; the necklace also features prominently in the poster artwork.
