And then there was this 1977 movie. My favorite movie of all time - because it defined the generation. Made a phenomena out of John Travolta, the Bee Gees, disco, and anything dance. Do the hustle!
Boomers in 1977 Disco and alternative rock fought it out for control of the airwaves. The Bee Gees sang and John Travolta danced in Saturday Night Fever. Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band toured with Born to Run. People waited in lines to see the first Star Wars movie.
“Saturday Night Fever” follows the story of 19 year old Brooklyn boy Tony Manero (JohnTravolta) as he strives to be the king of the disco floor. When Tony becomes infatuated with a girl on the dance floor, Stephanie (Karen Lynn Gorney), he invites her to be his partner in an upcoming dance competition. Stephanie eventually agrees, resulting in this very 70s style disco dance scene.
Saturday Night Fever - awesome!
"Saturday Night Fever", Disco was the Rage, The Bee Gees, Studio 54, Donna Summer...
I'm studying dance movies, books on dance, and dance moves. Saturday Night Fever has a dance I'm learning.

More Classically Bad Cinema. Part of what I call the Travolta Trilogy of Trash: Saturday Night Fever, Urban Cowboy, and Stayin' Alive. Can't resist any of those three delicious train wrecks.
Saw this in NYC on my birthday and fell madly in love with Orfeh.
