"Grease" (1978)

BACKSTORY: I saw this musical when it first came out in the Summer of 1978. I watched it in the theater over and over again; I couldn't get enough of the movie AND the music. I pretty much wore out my vinyl soundtrack LP. The film stars John Travolta, Olivia Newton-John, Stockard Channing, and Jeff Conaway. It was successful both critically and at the box office; its soundtrack album ended 1978 as the second-best selling album of the year in the United States, behind the soundtrack of Saturday Night Fever, another film starring Travolta. Some of the memorable hits include "You're The One That I Want," "Hopelessly Devoted," and "Greased Lightning." See some of the locations used in the film on my Hollywood Movie Tour Page.
