Rocky IV

Factual error: The limos they are driving in Russia are American Mercedes Benz models (American style bigger bumpers and headlights). Very unlikely at that time.

Factual error: Drago is presented as an infantry Captain in the Soviet Army. However, during the press conference his shoulder bars are the same as a soviet Colonel, not a Captain.

Factual error: Rocky's license plate reads "Sothpaw". In Pennsylvania, license plates were limited to six letters until the 1990's.

Factual error: During the press conference scene, Drago's hat should have an officer's gold cap cord, but instead has only a black chinstrap, which, combined with that style of cockade means that the cap is only approved for wear by warrant officers in the Soviet Army.

Continuity mistake: When Apollo is knocked out during the fight with Drago, he falls to the canvas in slow motion. During the fall his hands are hanging down, but in the next shot, when he lies on the floor after the fall, his hands are in front of his head. In the next shot his arms are down again. (00:31:25)

Trivia: Sylvester Stallone, actually tore a muscle in his heart while filming the training sequence in which he lifts the sleigh that everybody was sitting in. Filming had to stop for two months so doctors could make sure that he healed properly and the chances for him having a heart attack would be reduced.

Question: I recently purchased the soundtrack to Rocky IV and one of the songs is called Man Against The World. The small pamphlet that came with the CD stated that this song was originally going to be in the movie but was eventually left out. Had this song been in the movie, what scene would this song have appeared in?

Answer: Presumably it would have been used in the scene where Rocky and company arrive in Russia. Burning Heart (also by Survivor) was chosen to be used in this scene instead.
