John Travolta's iconic suit sells for $260,000
The white three-piece suit: vest, jacket and pants worn by John Travolta in "Saturday Night Fever" sold for $260,000 at an auction in California.
The monochromatic outfit went up for auction as part of the 'Hollywood: Classic & Contemporary' sale organized by Julien's Auctions and Turner Classic Movies (TCM) over the weekend.
In 1977, Travolta played Tony Manero, a young Italian-American from Brooklyn who tries to escape the realities of his life by dominating the disco dance floor. The hit film helped popularize disco music around the world, and Travolta received an Oscar nomination for Best Actor for his performance.
According to auctioneers, the polyester suit worn by Travolta in the film's famous dance competition scene is only one of two used during the film's production.
The listing described the costume as 'one of the most iconic in cinema history' and added that it comes with letters of authenticity from Paramount Studios and Travolta himself.
