ART OF FILM CLASS presents "Grease" on Thursday, October 13 at 12:30 pm.  Because of what recently befell Olivia Newton-John, revisiting “Grease”  is a tribute to her wonderful performances. “Grease” 1978 won the People’s Choice Awards in 1979 for BEST PICTURE. It is the film version of what was originally a Broadway musical, and although it developed movie stuff (like car races), one can experience something of a live show.  A thankfully PG film, made in 1978 by Robert Stigwood, “Grease” is “one of the last of the big movie musicals. It succeeds in spite of itself, with singers who can’t act, actors who can’t sing, and a plot so corny it should have a husk! But this tale of true love and teen angst circa 1955 is sure to leave one’s toes a –tapping, thanks to a dynamite soundtrack of golden oldies.” (David Abolafia) The cast stars the very young John Travolta, Olivia Newton-John, Stockard Channing…and also appearances by a variety of old pros including Eve Arden, Frankie Avalon, and—would you believe it—Sid Caesar! You are invited to watch, sing-a-long, and/or tap your way through this picture.
