August 10 – Grease (1978)

It’s California in the 50s — Danny (John Travolta) is leader of the black leather jacket-wearing T-Birds while Australian Sandy (Olivia Newton-John) hangs with the Pink Ladies, a group of pink-wearing girls. It amounts to a joyful satire on 50s’ teen culture, punctuated by memorable song-and-dance numbers. Rated PG, 110 m.
