    Country boy John Travolta arrives in the big city of Houston. He finds a home away fromhome in Gilley’s, a huge country & western bar. There he meets and falls in love with DebraWinger. But when villain Scott Glenn tries to steal her from him, will Travolta rise to thechallenge of the mechanical bull?


    A pretty nice job done of giving an older soundtrack a solid surround mix. The music and thesound effects both come through very well. You won’t…be blown away, but the disc certainly getsthe job done.


    A nice, 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer. The colours are generally pretty good (therodeo looks terrific), though some are a bit drab. There are a few speckles here and there, butgenerally this is a solid picture.

    Special Features

    Pretty minimal. The menu has a scored and animated main page and transitions (which doget a big tiring after a while), and the extras are simply two dancing outtakes and three scenesof mechanical bull rehearsals.

    Closing Thoughts

    This is primarily for Travolta completists and C&W fans (plenty of that hurtin’ music isoffered up).
