Saturday Night Fever 30th Anniversary

December 14, 2007

Excess Hollywood: ‘30 Years of ‘Saturday Night Fever’

“Saturday Night Fever” premiered Dec. 14, 1977, and defined the moment disco held in popular culture. Director John Badham’s snapshot of the 1970s disco craze, set in gritty pre-Giuliani New York, tells the story of 19-year-old Tony Manero (John Travolta, in the role that made him a film star) and his pals, whose lives revolve around Saturday nights at a Brooklyn disco. Polyester shirts, big hair, thumping music, touch-dancing, sexual promiscuity and the drug subculture were all part of the disco scene and “SNF” captured it all. Disco was dead by the 1980s but the movie remains a classic.
