John Travolta solidified his position as the most versatile and magnetic screen presence of the decade in this film version of the smash hit play Grease. Recording star Olivia Newton-John made her American film debut as Sandy, Travolta`s naive love interest. The impressive supporting cast reads like a "who`s who" in this quintessential musical about the fabulous `50s.
Grease is not just a nostalgic look at a simpler decade - it`s an energetic and exciting musical homage to the age of rock `n` roll.
It`s five years later and Tony Manero`s is still burning. Now he`s strutting toward his biggest challenge yet - making it as a dancer on the Broadway stage. John Travolta ignites the screen as he recreates his legendary, Oscar-nominated character. Cynthia Rhodes (Flashdance) and Finola Hughes sizzle as the women in Tony`s life. And the soundtrack pulsates with the power of five unforgettable Bee Gees songs plus Frank Stallone`s chart topping hit, "Far From Over."
Saturday Night Fever
John Travolta gives a sensual and intelligent performance as the troubled Tony Manero - Brooklyn paint store clerk by day and undisputed king of the dance floor by night. Every Saturday, Tony puts on his wide collared shirt, flared trousers and platform shoes and heads out to the only place where he`s seen as a god rather than just some young punk. But in the darkness, away from the strobe lights and glitter ball, is a tragic story of disillusionment, violence and heartbreak. Without a doubt, Travolta`s performance made him a Hollywood legend, but Saturday Night Fever is more than just a movie that defined the music and fashion of a generation. It`s a powerful and provocative urban tragedy that carries as much significance today as it did in 1977.
