This black vintage shirt is for the 1985 sports drama Rocky IV starring Sylvester Stallone as the titular Rocky Balboa. The shirt includes the phrase “The War” as the movie centered around Rocky facing off against the Soviet Union’s top boxer Ivan Drago played by Dolph Lundgren. The fight between the two fictional boxers was fueled by real life tensions created by the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union. The soundtrack to the movie features an instrumental track written and performed by Vince DiCola called “War”. Dicola was recruited by Sylvester Stallone to write the original score for the film, which made it the first Rocky film not to be composed by Bill Conti.
Rocky IV was the fourth and most financially successful movie of the Rocky film franchise. The cast featured Talia Shire, Burt Young, and Carl Weathers all reprising their roles from the previous films. The movie was written and directed by Stallone himself, and it remained the highest-grossing sports movie for 24 years, before it was surpassed by The Blind Side.
Fits like a modern unisex adult extra small.
