In real life, Rocky was not buried, plus there are the wrong dates on the tombstone.
When horseback riding with Diana, Rocky says "on your right" as he passes her. He's on her LEFT!
Just FYI: In 1976 I lived in Azusa California with my husband. I saw the real Rocky Dennis when I came out of Stater Brothers Supermarket. He was just standing there in the shopping center as if waiting for someone. I was startled at his appearance and thought he was wearing a mask. We didn't speak. I'm always reminded of that when I see the movie.
