For anybody that grew up in the 70s, 80s or 90s, Grease is a cinematic masterpiece. A comedy and romance story that turned into the most successful musical movie of all time featuring Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta.
The story tells the tale of an innocent and wholesome girl who falls in love with a 50s greaser. Their cliques separated them, but their love won in the end. It’s no surprise that this film became such a hit. A love story told through 50s doo-wop music and dance. Who wouldn’t love that!?
