Before Fran Drescher was known for The Nanny, she appeared alongside John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever. While her part was very small, she did have a very memorable dance with John in the film!

One of her funniest parts of the movie was actually improvised. She opened up about appearing in the ’77 film. She said, “That was, you know, a wonderful opportunity for me. I was still living at home with my parents, and I got that little part, and it just kind of started snowballing.”
