WILL RECEIVE CAREER AWARD AS GUEST OF HONOR AT NAPA VALLEY FILM FEST THIS WEEK
John Travolta, pictured above by Nancy Allen from the set of Brian De Palma's Carrie, is the guest of honor at the Napa Valley Film Festival this week, and will receive a career award at a Celebrity Tribute on Friday, November 13th, according to The San Francisco Chronicle's G. Allen Johnson. Johnson writes, "Although he became a star with three music-oriented films in quick succession — in addition to Saturday Night Fever, there were Grease and Urban Cowboy — Travolta was also quick to credit director Brian De Palma, who cast him in his first major film role in the Stephen King shocker Carrie. They worked together again in Blow Out, one of Travolta’s best (and most underrated) performances."
On Saturday at the Napa Film Fest, Travolta will be on hand to present the world premiere of David Hackl's Life On The Line, in which Travolta "plays a lineman working with his crew to fix an electrical grid as a powerful storm approaches," according to Johnson.
