John Travolta is riveting as Tony Manero; Brooklyn-based working stiff by day and king of the dance floor by night.  Caught up in a cycle of neighborhood turf squabbles and meaningless sexual scores, Tony sees competitive dance as a way out of the neighborhood in this most iconic of all disco artifacts, which spawned the biggest-selling soundtrack album in history, headlined by the Bee Gees.
