The Western Star - - LIFE TV GUIDE -

Satur­day, nine/im­parja, 8pm, P G (1978)

Af­ter his suc­cess in Satur­day Night Fever, John Tra­volta was a man in de­mand – and the per­fect choice for the role of greaser Danny Zuko for the cin­e­matic adap­ta­tion of Jim Jacobs and War­ren Casey’s stage mu­si­cal. Danny in­dulges in some “sum­mer lovin’” with Sandy (Olivia New­ton-John), but when the two find them­selves class­mates af­ter sum­mer, the but­ter-wouldn’t-melt-in-her-mouth Sandy is not cool enough for our Danny and his group of cronies. Full of song, dance, car races and, of course, a moral mes­sage, this clas­sic mu­si­cal can be watched over and over again. It’s not nec­es­sar­ily of the high­est cal­i­bre, but Grease is def­i­nitely the word.
