It’s the One That You Want
In cult-classic Grease, fresh-faced Sandy and bad boy Danny find summer love at the beach. But when school begins and they discover they’re both at Rydell High, will they be able to keep their romance alive? With a rockin', rollin' all-star cast and an irresistible sound track, this original high school musical will make you want to get up and dance.
- Grease was the highest grossing film of 1978 and is the highest grossing live-action musical of all time.
- According to Stockard Channing (Rizzo), her hickeys in the movie were real, applied by Jeff Conaway (Kenickie) himself.
- Thanks to a broken zipper, Olivia Newton-John had to be sewn into the pants she was wearing during the carnival scene.
- Although the film is set in high school, most of the lead actors were way beyond high school age. Stockard Channing, 33, was the oldest.
- The memorable 'You’re the One That I Want' sequence was filmed in just one afternoon.

- A '50s musical you’ll watch again and again

Meet the Cast
Danny Zuko (John Travolta)
Danny is the leader of the T-Birds, the tough gang at Rydell High. Will he be able to change his bad boy reputation and win Sandy’s love?
Sandy Olsson (Olivia Newton-John)
Australian Sandy is spending her summer in California, where she meets and falls in love with Danny. Little does she know at the time, he’s really a local greaser.
Rizzo (Stockard Channing)
Going only by her last name, Rizzo is the tough, sarcastic leader of the Pink Ladies. She doesn’t care for Sandy, whom she sees as a goody two-shoes.
Kenickie (Jeff Conaway)
A member of the T-Bird gang, Kenickie is Danny’s second in command. He has an ongoing relationship with Pink Ladies leader Rizzo.
John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John star in this musical on DVD about teens in love in the '50s. 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 neither of them knows 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. Available for the first time as a remastered Special Edition and featuring all-new bonus materials from the romantic-comedy musical, Grease: Rockin' Rydell Edition is the word!
A contemporary fantasy about a 1950's teen-age musical a larger, funnier, wittier and more imaginative-than-Hollywood movie with a life that is all its own --The New York Times, Vincent Canby
Grease boasts what all successful motion picture musicals have: likable stars, a simple but not trivial plot, and a lot of enjoyable music. Familiarity with the soundtrack is undoubtedly one of the reasons for the film's popularity: several of the songs have achieved pop hit status. Who can't recognize Grease, Hopelessly Devoted to You, You're the One that I Want, Greased Lightning, and Summer Nights? --James Berardinelli, Reelviews
I guess in many senses, Grease is still the word. --Movie insider

The special features for this edition are decent and the picture looks fairly good for DVD. One day, I will compare with Blu-ray. Until then, I will enjoy Olivia, John and the rest of the gang in this musical smash from 1978, GREASE!

Retrospective Interviews from several of the cast in the movie
The overall picture is very good: colors are sharp, not overly saturated, good detail. No complaints -- the video transfer is pleasing.
The AUDIO, on the other hand, is awful. The soundtrack musical numbers are clear and actually improved upon in 5.1 surround. But the dialog track is astonishingly muddy. There is a noticeable difference between the audio quality of the dialog and that of the musical numbers. I thought it was just my imagination until, after viewing, my wife made a comment about how hard it was to hear the dialog. This was a major disappointment, and for that reason, I would not recommend the Blu-ray edition.
Haven't watched all of the extras yet, but they are as expected, fun but nothing you probably didn't already know if you are a fan of the film.
