  1. I am looking for a movie that John Travolta was in where he was a single parent of a 10-13 yr old girl. He may have bet on a dog fight in which a doberman was nearly killed. The dog was dumped under a bridge and left to die. His daughter found it and began to feed and help it. The dog became her friend. I think Travolta her dad said she couldn’t keep it and she ran away with the dog. Travolta than sets out in search of his daughter. The point was the dog helped both the daughter and the father discover that they mattered to one another.

    Do you recognize this?


  2. Terri

    I think the movie you are talking about is ‘Eyes of an Angel’. It was released in 1991 and stars Ellie Raab as the ‘daughter’ of John Travolta.

  3. John Travolta chooses classy films in general with style and dignity. Wouldn’t say a bad word against him. The only one I didn’t like was “Carrie.” I try to stand up for animal rights now and again.

  4. The Boy in the plastic Bubble is not on the list. Also I would like to get this movie on DVD. Does anyone know if it was released on DVD in Digital format. I have found it on DVD but the Quality is like VHS. Thanks for any help

  5. Hi Ricky. ‘The Boy in the Plastic Bubble’ is not on the list as it was a television movie not a feature film. In my movie lists only films released at the cinemas (feature films) are listed. I’ve had a quick check and cannot find a good quality DVD. I’ve read many people complain that the quality of the DVD is very poor.

  6. Hi Jamie,

    I have done some research and haven’t found any movie called ‘Powder’ starring John Travolta. ‘Powder’ is a 1995 film starring Sean Patrick Flanery.

  7. Was Travolta in a movie that he played the President of the US and seemed to portray the Clinton years or race to become president. Based on the South, etc.

  8. @Rob

    Yes, Travolta acted as a presidential candidate (taking off Bill Clinton) in Primary Colors (1998) also starring Emma Thompson, Billy Bob Thornton, Kathy Bates (who received an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress) and Adrian Lester.

  9. Was there ever a plan for a “Pulp Fiction” sequel???
    If not , think there is a chance of this ever happening?
    John was great on this film & all his others…

  10. The director (Quentin Tarantino) has discussed a potential sequel and there have been rumors that a sequel is going ahead. However, nothing has been confirmed and it’s been a long time since the original. I’d say it’s not likely now.

  11. You missed the made for tv movie “The boy in the plastic bubble” (1976) The lack of biological immunities, forces him to live in a sterile plastic room (like an incubator).


    Face off, is my favorite of all John Travolta movie. I like him because he is a good actor, and he is my hero my day.

  15. What is the name of the movie where the majority of the positions of power are held by African Americans and John plays a role in which he gets harassed by officers because he is white? Was that a television movie?

  16. What movie did John travolta’s truck break down near a place of young boys and he helped them/stayed and worked with them thru music?

  17. There is a movie where they were talking about oil spills and stuff and he was going to court to win money for these people its sorta like Erin Brockovich movie with Julia Roberts

  18. John is one of the greatest movie actors of our day. He makes an outstanding bad guy and a really good nice guy. He can play any part in any movie and come out on top. I would sure like to meet him someday

  19. @ Brownie

    You may be thinking of the movie ‘A Civil Action’. In that movie families of children dying of leukemia sue two companies for dumping toxic waste.

  20. Teresa Muckelrath

    I love John. He is 100% awesome. His wife is beautiful, talented and really down to earth people. I saw her on “Fear Factor”. John was there watching and supporting her. It was their best show. It really showed the kind of people they are. He has truly been blessed with his talent and his family. Their son, Jet was taken before his time. My heart goes out to them. I have been collecting all his movies, almost there!
    It is so hard to pick a favorite movie. I love so many of them. I would have to choose “Urban Cowboy”.

  21. what was the name of the movie when john was in a gang in the 60s or 70s and i think johnny depp was in it with a few other famous actors

  22. John Travolta played a part in a movie when he became super intelligent and had to learn a language fast to help translate for a woman who was ill it turned out he had an inoperable tumour on the brain which caused him to become clever. he eventually died. What was the name of the movie

  25. Jamison asked about a film where John Travolta’s truck broke down. That film was included in your list and it’s called “Shout”.

  26. I am looking for a title in which supposedly John Travolta had a small role, probably uncredited. It was a horror film made back in the 70′s. I’m pretty sure the title has the word “devil” in it. If anyone can help me with this, I would appreciate it. Thanks…

  27. JAB,

    I think the movie you are looking for is ‘The Devil’s Rain’ released in 1975. I had forgotten it in the list. It’s added now.
