    GREASE IS THE WORD

    Grease,Randal Kleiser’s frenetic film version of the smash Broadway musical, rode the tail end of the wave of nostalgia for the Eisenhower era that washed over the 1970s. The malaise decade’s idealization of pre-counterculture American “innocence” was first expressed in Don MacLean’s paean to Buddy Holley, “American Pie” (1971) and fully realized in the funeral of Elvis Presley at his Graceland estate in 1977. 

    The main themes and plot elements of Grease had been previously explored more deeply in films like Peter Bogdanovich’s masterpiece The Last Picture Show (1971), George Lucas’ American Graffiti (1973) and The Lords of Flatbush (1975) and much less deeply in the sitcom Happy Days. Keeping the tone light, Grease’s 1950s is the sum of its fads: greasers, pedal-pushers, juke boxes, sock hops, chrome, penny-loafers and drive-ins. Rebels, causes, beatniks, and authentic wild ones are conspicuously absent.

    Grease was the highest grossing film of 1978. The soundtrack spawned two #1 Billboard hits, the ballad “Hopelessly Devoted to You,” wriitten for the film to capitalize on pop singer and female lead Olivia Newton-John’s vocal abilities, and “You’re the One That I Want,” her duet with Travolta. The AM radio hits drove soundtrack sales over 28 million. The back-to-back triumphs of Saturday Night Fever (1977) and Grease established John Travolta’s status as a major Hollywood star — and doomed his early career by setting the expectations bar impossibly high.
