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.
At the nightclub where Tony works at night, he meets up with 2two groupies, one of them is Joyce Hyser
, the lead character in "Just One of the Guys", she played Terry.
