Saturday Night Fever (1977) While in the disco, a working-class young man is the champion
dancer. His circle of friends and weekend dancing help him cope with the harsh realities of his
life: a dead-end job, clashes with his unsupportive and squabbling parents, racial tensions in
the local community, and his general restlessness. Directed John Badham, this musical drama
stars John Travolta, Karen Lynn Gorney and Donna Pescow.
The Saturday Night Fever soundtrack, featuring disco songs by the Bee Gees, is one of the bestselling soundtracks of all time. The film was nominated for Best Actor, Best Original Score and Best Original Song.
