More than a celebration of all things disco, Saturday Night Fever is also a gripping story about a young mans struggle to transcend the confines of his humdrum existence.
Travolta was nominated for an Academy Award® for his sensitive portrayal of Tony Manero, a Brooklyn store clerk who finds escape from a dead-end life on the disco floor. Set to the classic Bee Gees soundtrack, Saturday Night Fever is a legendary icon of American culture and cinema.
30TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION SPECIAL FEATURES:
Disc One: Commentary by Director, John Badham / 70s Discopedia
Disc Two: Catching The Fever / Back To Bay Ridge / Dance Like Travolta With John Cassese / Fever Challenge!
It was the snake-hipped dance routines which made John Travolta an immediate sex symbol. But seen today, his performance as Tony is compelling: rough-hewn, certainly, but complex and true, anticipating the fine screen actor he would be recognised as 20 years later. Scenes of the Manhattan skyline and the Brooklyn Bridge, representing Tony's route to a bigger world, now have an added poignancy, adding to Saturday Night Fever's evocative power. It's a bittersweet classic.
On the DVD: Saturday Night Fever is presented in 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen with a Dolby Digital 5.1 surround soundtrack, both of which help to recapture the unique atmosphere of the late 1970s. The main extra is a director's commentary from John Badham, with detailed descriptions of casting and the improvisation behind many of the scenes, plus the unsavoury reality behind Travolta's iconic white disco suit. --Piers Ford --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.
Was advertised as HD but wasn't and had subtitles which couldn't be removed. Contacted Amazon, money reimbursed straight away and film remove. Pity, love this film.Published 2 months ago by Lucy Burgess
