Whether you’re a brother or whether you’re a mother, everybody knows Saturday Night Fever!
Strutting into theatres on December 16, 1977, the iconic disco drama celebrates its 40th anniversary today and we’ve got boogie fever!
Directed by John Badham (Dracula, WarGames), Saturday Night Fever was inspired by a New York Magazine article titled “Tribal Rites of the New Saturday Night” and went on to become a massive box office success. Shot on a modest budget of $3M, the film has since earned over $237M worldwide!
Starring John Travolta as the groove-shakin’ Tony Manero, Saturday Night Fever served as a breakout role for the talented triple-threat and even earned him a Best Actor nomination at the 1978 Academy Awards.
Of course, there wouldn’t be much dancing without music! One of the best-selling soundtracks of all time,
