Trivia
The two scenes where Rocky runs up the museum stairs (the first where he can't do it and the second during the "Gonna Fly Now" training sequence where he runs up them triumphantly) were filmed two hours apart. The first before the sun rose, the second afterwards.

Goofs
About a half hour into the film, Rocky is looking at pictures and clippings on the wall, and there is the sound of a steam locomotive coming up to speed, along with the sound of its steam whistle. Diesels had long since supplanted steam in Philadelphia and most of the country in 1976.
