Hollywood: Classic & Contemporary Auction
Saturday, April 22nd & Sunday, April 23rd
TCM & Julien’s Auctions
257 North Canon Drive
310 836 1818
Happening this weekend, “HOLLYWOOD: CLASSIC & CONTEMPORARY”, featuring more than 1,400 iconic items from 100 years of pop culture history.
The centerpiece of this historic auction event is the custom-made white suit worn by John Travolta in his Academy Award®-nominated role as Tony Manero in the classic blockbuster motion picture Saturday Night Fever. This ensemble and the film itself helped define the Disco era and cemented the genre’s popularity for years to come. The world-famous and instantly recognizable polyester suit (comprised of three individual pieces: jacket, vest, and pants) worn by Travolta while burning up the dance floor to the Bee Gees’ smash hit “More Than a Woman” in one of the film’s memorable dance scenes, became emblematic of the film, and the soundtrack remains one of the bestselling motion picture soundtracks in history.
In 2010, the Library of Congress deemed Saturday Night Fever as “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.” The film is preserved and archived in the U.S. National Film Registry. This premiere outfit, from the film that made John Travolta a superstar, is considered a pinnacle piece of American pop culture history.
