I said "Look, LeRoy, if I put you in the movie and you play a referee, would you do some art for the film, maybe even a poster?" And he says, "Absolutely!" As he's sitting around between shots, he would draw. And this one here (reads) "October 31, 1978 Rocky filling his own shoes." And he just captured the moment better than anybody. That's why he was so gifted. It's been in my home since 1978."
