Plot Synopsis:

The film that made John Travolta a household name is set in Brooklyn to the popular dance music of the Bee Gees. Tony Manero (Travolta) is a paint-store clerk who becomes the king of the discotheque when he puts on his polyester and gets down, with a little help from a social-climbing Manhattan secretary (Karen Lynn Gorney). This definitive portrait of a generation of disco dancers in the 1970s skyrocketed its young star to fame and further propelled the disco inferno infatutation.

Production Notes:

  • Theatrical release: December 16, 1977.
  • Shot on location in Brooklyn, New York.
  • Although John Travolta was already a teenage heartthrob due to his role as Vinnie Barbarino on the WELCOME BACK, KOTTER television series, it was SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER that made him a superstar.
  • In 1983, Sylvester Stallone directed John Travolta in STAYING ALIVE, the sequel to SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER.
  • Nik Cohen, who wrote the allegedly non-fiction magazine article on which SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER is based, admitted in 1996 that the piece was a "total fabrication." Cohen originally claimed to have met and interviewed the patrons of a real Brooklyn disco; but it turned out that his British friends were the story's true inspiration.
  • John Travolta's sister appears as the pizza lady and his mother appears as the woman for whom he gets paint.
