This Week in Television History: February 2014 PART III


Listen to me on TV CONFIDENTIAL:


As always, the further we go back in Hollywood history, the more that fact and legend become intertwined. It's hard to say where the truth really lies.


February 18, 1954
John Joseph Travolta is born. 

Actor, dancer, and singer. Travolta first became known in the 1970s, after appearing on the television series Welcome Back, Kotter and starring in the box office successes Saturday Night Fever and Grease. Travolta's acting career declined through the 1980s. 
His career enjoyed a resurgence in the 1990s with his role in Pulp Fiction, and he has since continued starring in more recent films such as Face/Off, Ladder 49, and Wild Hogs. Travolta was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor for Saturday Night Fever and Pulp Fiction

He won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor - Motion Picture Musical or Comedy for his performance in Get Shorty.




To quote the Bicentennial Minute, "And that's the way it was".
