a humorous view of 70's disco life
7 November 1998 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

By happenstance, I was in this movie (dating a member of the production team) and when an extra didn't show up in front of Carlos and Charlie's on the Strip at 3 in the morning, it was discovered I fit the costume and viola! I had a non-speaking scene with Fabian.

Who knows where I can obtain a copy of this? Last word I received was that it might be available in a dubbed version.

Trivia buffs-- Disco fever was NOT the original title. Due to the plot of the movie, the original title was Jet Set Disco.
