Item/Description: John Travolta autographed “Saturday Night Fever” framed photograph.
***I once owned a Hollywood-themed restaurant & nightclub with in excess of 2,000 autographs and entertainment memorabilia items on display. This autograph was once a part of that vast collection!
This stunningly matted and framed-under glass authentic hand-signed color glossy movie scene still photo marvelously depicts perhaps the most memorable scene from the entire movie, the one where John Travolta, in his Oscar-nominated role as Brooklyn youth “Tony Manero,” is dancing in the local neighborhood nightclub 2001 Odyssey’s dance contest with his love interest “Stephanie Mangano,” who is played by Karen Lynn Gorney. He is dazzlingly attired in his infamous white three-piece Dance Fever-style “disco suit” and is fantastically “action posing” in his renowned “king of the dance floor” one arm up, one arm down dance stance.
Autograph Details/Inscriptions: Original autograph, hand-signed in blue Sharpie: ”John Travolta”

Excerpted Online Research Information (attributed to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saturday_Night_Fever ): “‘Saturday Night Fever’ is a 1977 American dance film directed by John Badham and starring John Travolta as ‘Tony Manero’, an immature young man whose weekends are spent visiting a local Brooklyn discothèque; Karen Lynn Gorney as his dance partner and eventual friend; and Donna Pescow as Tony's former dance partner and would-be girlfriend. While in the disco, Tony is the king. His care-free youth and weekend dancing 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 macho friends.
A huge commercial success, the film significantly helped to popularize disco music around the world and made Travolta, already well known from his role on TV's ‘Welcome Back, Kotter’, a household name. The ‘Saturday Night Fever’ soundtrack, featuring disco songs by ‘The Bee Gees’, is one of the best selling soundtracks of all time...The film also showcased aspects of the music, the dancing, and the subculture surrounding the disco era: symphony-orchestrated melodies, haute-couture styles of clothing, pre-AIDS sexual promiscuity, and graceful choreography.
The story is based upon a 1976 New York magazine article by British writer Nik Cohn, ‘Tribal Rites of the New Saturday Night’...
