Shout (1991)

There’s a terrific Texas trio of vintage neon signs in this John Travolta story of a music teacher at a school for wayward boys. Glowing, state shaped Jax and Pearl lights are phenomenal and the Lone Star’s not too bad either.

Saturday Night Fever (1977)

This disco dancing blockbuster starring John Travolta, and the Bee Gee’s soundtrack, was larger than life back in ’77. Ballentine and Schaefer cans appear in multiple scenes and we get a great Rheingold neon sign.

Urban Cowboy (1980)

John Travolta plays a hayseed who learns about city life in Houston with the help of love interest Debra Winger. The Lone Star placement is heavy and we also get good bar signage with Schlitz, Miller Lite & High Life and Coors to name a few. I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention Gilley’s.
