    Happy Anniversary Saturday Night Fever

    Released in 1977, Saturday Night Fever celebrates its 45th anniversary this year. The low budget film became a monster box office hit and launched Disco—the music and fashion revolution—on the world.

    The story follows Tony Manero, an arrogant macho young man from Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, living at home with his parents. Tony escapes his boring life and obligations by dancing his troubles away with his rough and tumble friends at the 2001 Odyssey nightclub where he is revered as king of the dance floor.

    In 2010, Saturday Night Fever was deemed “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant” by the Library of Congress and selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry.

    John Travolta’s iconic white suit, originally purchased ‘off the rack’ in a small Brooklyn neighborhood shop by costume designer Patrizia von Brandenstein, remains a beacon of light in an otherwise dark little movie. In 1995, the suit sold for a remarkable $145,000 at a Christie’s auction.

    This week You Should Be Dancing in disco dance wear and 1970s classics: spandex leotards, tights, and wrap skirts. It’s a Disco Inferno in novelty print polyester shirts, tank tops and leather jackets à la Tony Manero. We’re Stayin’ Alive in 1970s dress shirts in bold dark colors, gold chains and medallions. Don’t forget those Boogie Shoes—platforms, strappy-heeled sandals, and Cuban-heeled leather boots.

    I sold these - they were amazing - about 5" long!

    I still have these - I don't know if they are '70s - probably earlier but I can picture them out on the Disco Dance Floor:

    The rods are plastic.
