Rocky is back. Yay. Strictly for nostalgia lovers, Rocky Balboa - the latest in a film franchise that stretches back three decades - resurrects everyone's favorite underdog heavyweight boxing champion for one last go at the title. Hero worshipers who cherish the Rocky character will doubtless enjoy what amounts to a stroll down fantasy lane, as the 60-year-old Balboa revisits his old haunts (even the skating rink where he and Adrian fell in love) and tries to recapture some of the old magic.

A down-to-earth guy from a working-class city is determined to succeed in a tough business. Punching above his weight, he beats the odds and makes it into the ring, cheered on by a crowd that includes a woman who shares his modest roots and encourages his big dreams. That's not just the scenario of the wildly popular 1976 film "Rocky. " It also works as the art-imitating-art story line for the two Baltimore-area actors starring in the new musical version of "Rocky" that opens this week on Broadway.

THE QUESTION If you have been to the movies lately, you know about some of the coming movies this year. What is on your list of must-see films this fall and why? WHAT YOU SAY The sixth installment of the Rocky series, Rocky Balboa [which is due out in December]. I have loved every single Rocky film and have been jones-ing for at least one more to wrap it all up for about 16 years now. The trailers give me those goose bumps that make me bite my nails with anticipation. Once you hear that music, forget about it. I can't wait for that movie.

PHILADELPHIA -- Front offices don't set out to build teams that symbolize the cities in which they play. It doesn't help them win, and it's almost an impossible task under the divisive influence of free agency, which changes the face of every team every year, rendering any personality temporary.Occasionally, however, the sporting moons are aligned and luck is a lady and there comes along a team that, unintentionally, becomes such a perfect reflection of its hometown that you can only shake your head in amazement.

ON SCREEN, Dolph Lundgren has absolutely no trace of an accent. In person, the Swedish origin is barely detectable. You have to listen for it. ''I worked on it,'' said Lundgren. ''I'm still working on it, and I did go to school in this country.''Actually, he went to several, Clemson, MIT and Washington State among them.He grew up in Sweden and Germany. In Stockholm, he attended the Royal Institute of Technology. Later, he went to the University of Sydney where he ''pursued'' a degree in chemical engineering.

Washington-- --After 30 years, millions of dollars and countless minutes of fame, Rocky Balboa still calls out to Adrian as if he's a nobody who never left the old neighborhood. "Yo, Adrian! How ya doin'?" bellowed Sylvester Stallone, imitating the iconic movie character that long ago helped vault his Rocky films into American lore. As the actor/writer/director yesterday donated items from his first five Rocky films to the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, he reflected upon the scrappy, pugnacious, unheralded boxer, who time and again triumphed over great odds and adversity.
