Movie of the Day…


John Travolta stars in Brian DePalma’s 1981 conspiracy thriller, Blow Out. Travolta plays a sound-man named Jack Terry, who primarily works for B-horror movies.  One night, while recording samples to use for the movies, he captures what sounds like a tire ‘blowout’, then witnesses a car plunge into a nearby pond.  When he jumps in to try and help, he finds a man dead, but a young woman still alive.  At the hospital the media arrives, it is revealed that the deceased man was the governor of Pennsylvania, in the running for President.  When he goes home to review his recordings, he distinctively hears a gunshot right before the car crashes into the water.  He then sets out to find out who is truly behind the conspiracy and expose the truth.

Blow Out also stars Nancy Allen, Dennis Franz, and John Lithgow.
