Film composer Vince DiCola had never scored an entire movie before in the mid-80s. But once actor/director Sylvester Stallone heard a few of his demo tracks for Rocky IV, he decided to hire DiCola for the gig. That film ended up being one of the most financially successful movies of the Rocky franchise.
