A New York Magazine article inspired Norman Wexler’s screenplay about a group of Brooklyn friends who spend their weekends at a local disco. The story centers on Tony Manero (Travolta), who feels misunderstood at home under the shadow of a brother who is in a monastery. He finds escape by working at a local hardware store to earn money to spend on stylish clothing that can accentuate his dance moves on a multi-color lighted dance floor. The main plot of the movie centers on a dance contest that Tony knows he can win if he can convince a newcomer Stephanie Mangano (Gorney) to be his partner. This box-office smash helped solidify the star power of John Travolta, known then for TV’s Welcome Back Kotter. The soundtrack was a huge seller, producing several top hits from the Bee Gees, KC & The Sunshine Band and Yvonne Elliman.
