Hot on the heels of Saturday Night Fever and Grease, John Travolta (Blow Out) teamed up with Lily Tomlin (Nashville, 9 to 5) for the 1978 May/December love story Moment by Moment.

Trisha Rawlings (Tomlin), a lonely, middle-aged Beverly Hills socialite, meets Vick “Strip” Harrison (Travolta), a suave young drifter. Their initial flirtation turns into a passionate relationship despite their age and class differences. Oy…

Tomlin’s longtime partner Jane Wagner (The Incredible Shrinking Woman) wrote and directed this romantic melodrama which was shot by ace cinematographer Philip H. Lathrop (They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?).

Boasting a tagline that reads, “The only thing they have in common… is each other,” Moment by Moment is a weird one. Unintentionally hysterical at time, it’s still worth a look-see…

Special Features:
-NEW Audio Commentary by Film Historians Lee Gambin and Sergio Mims with Maya Montanez Smukler, Author of Liberating Hollywood: Women Directors & the Feminist Reform of 1970s American Cinema
-3 Radio Spots
-Theatrical Trailer
