Re: Favorite Early John Travolta Movie

Saturday Night Fever, I love Grease too though.

 

I was just a kid when SNF came out, and my Mom wouldn't let me see it. I later found out that she went to see it with our next door neighbor. I was so mad lol

 

I still remember the Travolta poster I had on my wall-this is the one!

Re: Favorite Early John Travolta Movie

Other than the two obvious ones, I liked the 1981 Brian De Palma film Blow Out starring Travolta who while recording sound effects for a slasher film stumbles upon a real-life horror. It also starred De Palma's wife at the time Nancy Allen.

Of course SNF.  I even liked Staying Alive even tho it was panned 

 

But, Blow Out and Face Off are among my favorite all time movies 

 

 


I liked Staying Alive too; I saw it more than once at the theater.  I loved the music and dancing in it.

 

Favorite is SNF, followed closely by Michael.

@On It My favorite Travolta movie is "Michael" where he plays Michael the arch angel.  Loved that he smelled like chocolate chip cookies so women adored him, oh and the dancing

Tobes - I love this movie.  We have the DVD and watch it at least once a year.
