Grease Movie Summary
The movie Grease celebrates teenage culture in the post World War Two era. Bobby Soxers and Greasers had their own fashion, slang, and music.
Greaser Danny Zuko (John Travolta) falls in love with wholesome and pure Sandy Olson (Olivia Newton-John) at the Beach over the summer. They believe they are saying goodbye as Sandy returns to her native Australia when the summer is over.
Fast forward to the first day of school at Rydell High School. Sandy is trying to make friends with the Pink Ladies, a rough group of girls. She tells them about her “summer nights”. Danny tells a racier version to his gang of freinds known as The T-Birds. The Pink Ladies giggle when they learn that Sandy’s Prince Charming is their friend, Danny Zuko.
The Danny they know is not innocent. He has dated most of the girls at the school, including Rizzo (Stockard Channing). A jaded Rizzo is anxious to show Sandy the real Danny and arranges for them to reunite at a High School Pep Rally in front of the T-Birds. Rizzo knew that Danny would “play it cool” in front of his friends which devastates Sandy.
