Released in the US on 17 June 1978, Grease became the biggest American box office hit of that year. Danny and Sandy’s classic tale of summer lovin’ at Rydell High School didn’t take long to become a worldwide favourite, with audiences slayed at the site of John Travolta’s pout and Olivia Newton-John’s leathers. Not to mention the music: You’re the One That I Want, Greased Lightnin’, Summer Nights, the list goes on. Grease is the word.
