38 years on, people still can’t stopasking Olivia Newton-John about ‘Grease’ – and now, the actress and singer has given her thoughts on the divisive sequel. Almost none of the original 1978 film’s cast returned for 1982’s ‘Grease 2,’ which saw a new class at Rydell High – including an early leading role for Michelle Pfeiffer.
A simple lyric from ‘Summer Nights’ – “I saved her life, she nearly drowned” – spawned a fan theory that’s been circulating the web since 2013. For reasons known only to the cosmos, the theory started doing the rounds again last week. It proffers the tragic notion that Olivia Newton-John’s Sandy was not saved from drowning by Travolta’s charismatic greaser Danny Zuko.
The songs have survived the tests of time, the sequel not so much, but ‘Grease’ was a genuine cultural phenomenon in 1978, making fresh-faced stars of John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. The one-two-punch of 'Saturday Night Fever’ and 'Grease’ made Travolta the sexiest man of the late seventies – never underestimate the pull of looking good on the dancefloor. Travolta quickly fell out of favour until 'Pulp Fiction’ gave him a career resurrection in 1994 – one which lasted approximately until the release of mega-flop Scientology vanity project 'Battlefield Earth’ in 2000.
After 38 years and innumerable professional and amateur stage performances all around the world, it’s still very hard to envisage anyone other than Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta playing the tuneful 1950s lovebirds Sandy and Danny.
