John Badham was born in Luton, Bedfordshire, United Kingdom, the son
of U.S. Army General Henry Lee Badham, Jr., and English-born actress
Mary Iola Badham (née Hewitt). Badham's father, a native of
Birmingham, Alabama, moved his family back to the U.S., when Badham
was two years old. John's parents and paternal grandparents are buried
in Elmwood Cemetery in Birmingham. John's father was an aviator in
both World Wars, and was posthumously inducted into the Alabama
Aviation Hall of Fame in 2007. After retirement from the U.S. Air
Force as a Brigadier General, John's father became a businessman and
was involved with the development of the Ensley and Bessemer regions
near Birmingham, Alabama. This same line of business had brought his
own father, John's grandfather, into association with Walker Percy,
grandfather of writer Walker Percy.
Following World War II, Badham's family settled in Mountain Brook, a
suburb of Henry Lee Badham, Jr.'s native Birmingham, where John Badham
was raised. He attended the
Indian Springs School in Indian Springs
Village and college at Yale University.
Badham worked in television for years, before his breakthrough in 1977
with Saturday Night Fever, a massive worldwide hit starring John
The Bingo Long Traveling All-Stars & Motor Kings (1976)
