Description

A musical about teens in love in the 50's! It's California, 1959 and greaser Danny Zuko and Australian Sandy Olsson are in love. They spend time at the beach, but when they go back to school, what either of them don't know is that they both now attend Rydell High. Danny's the leader of the T-Birds, a group of black-jacket greasers while Sandy hangs with the Pink Ladies, a group of pink-wearing girls led by Rizzo. When they clash at Rydell's first pep rally, Danny isn't the same Danny at the beach. They try to be like each other so they can be together.

Synopsis
This film adaptation of GREASE is the zippy smash hit translation from the Broadway musical tribute to the fabulous 1950s. As a new school year begins, wholesome Australian exchange student Sandy (pop star Olivia Newton-John) and duck-tailed, leather-jacketed Danny (John Travolta) parlay their summertime romance into an on-and-off attraction that may or may not cross clique lines. Sandy seriously cramps Danny's style, so he dumps her. In response, Sandy begins dating a wholesome athlete, but, as a hedge, she also joins the gum-chewin', tough-talkin' clique known as the Pink Ladies. One of the most beloved musicals of all time, the popular soundtrack includes "You're the One that I Want," "Hopelessly Devoted to You," "Sandy," "Summer Nights," and the title tune.
Notes
Currently the highest-grossing musical of all-time, GREASE has made $380 million at the box office worldwide.

Olivia Newton-John's film debut.

"...Pleasant and upbeat....Travolta is an important and enduring movie star..."
Roger Ebert (27 Mar 1998, p.34)

"...The enduring appeal of the teenybopping musical spawned a knock-off sequel, a Broadway revival, and countless high school productions..."
Jennifer Armstrong (11 Oct 2002, p.61)
New York Times
"...A life that is all its own....Loaded with the kind of talent and exuberance you don't often find very far from a musical stage..."
Vincent Canby (16 Jun 1978, p.C10)
