SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER
1977, Paramount, 119 min, USA, Dir: John Badham

Plucked from the cast of the ensemble high-school sitcom “Welcome Back Kotter” for his first starring film role, this is the movie that made John Travolta a movie star and confirmed that the man can DANCE! Director John Badham, better known for action and war movies, here captures the connection between great dance music and the body. The story of a Brooklyn youth stuck in a working-class job, who finds that being king of the dance floor during the late-’70s disco craze might be his ticket to bigger things, SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER has it all: big hair, white polyester suits and the quintessential Bee Gees soundtrack.
