It’s hard to believe that it’s been 40 years since John Travolta strutted across the screen to the chart-topping sounds of the Bee Gees in this blockbuster slice-of-life drama. During the day, Brooklyn working stiff Tony Manero (Travolta) hustles paint and plywood in neighborhood hardware store. But at night, he turns the dance floor into a disco inferno. Although he’s the envy of everyone in the club, Tony begins to realize that there’s more to life than just being the king of Saturday night. Apart from the fashions, Saturday Night Fever has aged remarkably well with several dramatic pieces that pack a wallop and dance sequences that still make you want to boogie!
