The Zurich Film Festival will honor John Travolta with its lifetime achievement award, the Golden Eye, at this year’s festival, which runs September 20 to 30. The iconic actor of SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER and PULP FICTION has been in the tabloids lately, accused by male masseuses of unwanted advances (fueling rumors that have existed for decades about the actor’s true sexuality). However, Travolta’s stature as a true international movie star is the focus of the Zurich tribute. Travolta will receive the honor on opening night, September 20, ahead of the Gala Premiere of Oliver Stone’s SAVAGES, in which he co-stars alongside Taylor Kitsch, Aaron Johnson and Blake Lively. Zurich is also honoring veteran Hollywood Producer Jerry Weintraub (OCEAN’S ELEVEN) with a Golden Eye award on September 26.
