On the 40th anniversary of its initial release, Grease is set for a return to the big screen. Park Circus, a company who specialise in promoting and screening classic movies, will be making the film available this April. From director Randal Kleiser, and featuring an explosion of song and dance, as well as star-making performances from John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, Grease made an indelible impact on popular culture.
40 years later, the film remains an enduring favourite as legions of new fans discover the memorable moments, sensational soundtrack and classic love story. Boasting unforgettable songs including “Greased Lightning”, “Look At Me, I’m Sandra Dee”, “Summer Nights”, “Hopelessly Devoted To You” and, of course, “Grease”, the film is a timeless feel-good celebration.
Following the huge success of Saturday Night Fever, John Travolta cemented his position as the most versatile and magnetic screen presence of his generation in this film version of the hit 1971 stage musical Grease. Recording star Olivia Newton-John made her American film debut as Sandy, Travolta’s love interest – and the chemistry between them as star-crossed lovers proved to be electric. The supporting cast includes Stockard Channing, Jeff Conaway and none other than Frankie Avalon singing his way through “Beauty School Dropout”.
Grease will be in UK cinemas from the 19th of April.
