Storyline

Behind The Movie looks at the definitive disco film that captured a generation. The story of a dead end kid who finds glory on the dance floor was a dark tale; however, its soundtrack solidified disco's reign on the pop charts. The making of the film was anything but magical - it proved to be a long and trying odyssey. The director was fired, disco was a dying phenomenon and in the midst of production, John Travolta lost the love his life, Diana Hyland, to cancer. Despite all the roadblocks, Travolta and the film broke records, extended the life of disco and sparked a polyester revolution. The film and its music became the anthem of the seventies and a pop phenomenon with a life in the 21st century. Written by Anonymous
