John's father, Salvatore, was a former semiprofessional football player and
tire salesman, and his mother, Helen, was a high school drama coach. The
Travolta children were raised in the Roman Catholic religion, and being the
youngest child, John was pampered beyond anything that his siblings would
have ever thought possible. When he was a toddler, John always wanted to be
the center of attention, and he would go to great lengths to accomplish
this. Once he tore through his father's closet when his father was at work,
and when his dad walked through the door, he acted like he was the father
and his dad was him. John questioned his father about why he was coming in
late and so on, his father started to crack a smile and then came a booming
laugh, John got his wish, he had amused his father. Those types of stunts
went on for years, until his father built him his very own stage in the
basement of their home in Englewood. Always the actor, John appeared in
local actor workshop plays and in dinner clubs around the Englewood area.
While he was in school he took every opportunity to appear in plays, and to
entertain his teachers and friends. John also had a talent for dancing and
took tap lessons from Gene Kelly's brother, Fred. When he was sixteen years
old, he dropped out of school to pursue his acting on a full time basis.
