Grease
 

 

John Travolta, Olivia Newton-John
Paramount Pictures; Directed by Randal Kleiser
Rated PG; 110 minutes; 1978

 
John Travolta solidified his position as the most versatile and magnetic screen presence of the decade in GREASE, one of the most successful motion pictures of all time. Recording star Olivia Newton-John made her American film debut as Sandy, Travolta's painfully naive love interest. GREASE was not just a nostalgic look at a simpler decade, peopled with characters of universal appeal, this re-release is an energetic and exciting homage to the age of rock 'n roll!
