While Travolta's character has considerable depth with a traumatic past underneath his cool, cynical exterior, he's kind of cancelled out by Allen's naive airhead, though that's more a problem with the writing than with Allen's acting ability.
Nancy Allen's portrayal of Sally, the woman rescued by John Travolta, was also annoying in that her character talks high pitched all the time, but in a way it added to the movie and created a more sympathetic companion for John Travolta -- plus, I had just watched Days of Heaven.
It stars John Travolta in an early role as Jack Terry, a film sound-effects man who hears and sees a car crash one evening - involving a US presidential candidate - when recording sounds for a low-budget slasher film.
