Actor John Travolta: His Turbulent Fate, Major Successes, and High-Profile Failure

John Travolta is a famous American actor who was in many popular movies and was very wellliked. He was born on February 18, 1954, to an Italian football player and an Irish singer.

He became well-known quickly. His first big role was in the TV show “Welcome Back, Kotter” from 1975 to 1979. In 1976, he was in the famous thriller movie “Carrie,” based on a Stephen King novel.

In 1977, he starred in “Saturday Night Fever,” and it became a huge hit and a cult classic in the U.S. John suddenly had many fans who wrote him lots of letters.

But in 1978, when the musical “Grease” came out, there was a huge “Travoltamania” all over America. He even sang some songs in the movie, and they became super popular. Many critics praised his acting and predicted a bright future for him in Hollywood.

However, after all this success, John Travolta’s star began to fade. He started acting in movies that didn’t do well commercially, like the good thriller “Blow Out” (1981) by Brian De Palma, and some questionable projects. Later, he admitted that he had a hard time choosing good movies, and he made a lot of mistakes.

It seemed like people were starting to forget about John (even a comedy trilogy called “Look Who’s Talking” didn’t help). But then, something unexpected happened. Or rather, someone extraordinary in the movie business stepped in.
