Just before ‘Saturday Night Fever’ made him a mega-star, Travolta’s management decided he needed to be shot by a rock & roll photographer, Seeff explains. ‘I was in the early phase of trying to figure out how to get people to relax in front of a camera,’ he says. ‘And I was doing pretty trial-and-error, radical stuff, like throwing a pie in Frank Zappa’s face to loosen him up.’ For this shoot, he doused a willing Travolta with a bucket of water. At one point, he says, Travolta discussed his upcoming dancing role. He said, ‘What do you think of this pose?’ Seeff remembers. ‘And he put his arm up and, thank God, I said, ‘Oh, I think that’s great.’
