Classic Cameo Alert! Watch early in the film as Travolta leaves a dance studio. Director Sylvester Stallone bumps into Tony on the street and turns camera-side for a moment with a scowl. Criticised at the time for not being able to keep his ego out of any film he was involved with, I always looked on the moment as total brilliance due to Travolta's hint of recognition.
