The Boy in the Plastic Bubble
John first showed his sensitive side in this 1976 made-for-TV movie. In the film, which is based on a true story, John plays Tod Lubitch, a boy born with an immune deficiency who must be protected from the outside world. He lives his life from inside a plastic bubble, where he eats, studies, reads, exercises and falls in love with his next-door neighbor.
