Saturday Night Fever is a film released on December 14, 1977. It stars John Travolta as Tony Manero, a troubled Brooklyn youth whose weekend activities are dominated by visits to a local discothèque. While in the disco, Tony is the king, and the visits help him to temporarily forget the reality of his life: a dead-end job, clashes with his unsupportive and squabbling parents, racial tensions in the local community, and his associations with a gang of dead-beat friends.
A huge commercial success, the movie significantly helped to popularize disco music around the world and made Travolta a household name. The soundtrack, featuring music from the Bee Gees, became the best selling soundtrack ever.
The story was also produced as a musical stage production in London, Sydney and on Broadway.
In a December 15, 2007 BBC interview, Robin Gibb admitted that he had never seen the film.
