    45 years after its release, Grease is still the Word! Adapted from the original live theatrical production, the film follows two teenagers from different worlds - Australian good girl Sandy Olsson (played by the late-great Olivia Newton-John) and American greaser Danny Zuko (played by a 22 year-old John Travolta, fresh off his star-making film debut in Saturday Night Fever), who fall in love over the summer of 1958, only to discover that they now attend the same suburban high school. Upon its release in 1978, Grease was an instant box office smash, becoming the highest-grossing film musical ever at the time. Besides the catchy, unforgettable tunes we all know and love, the film serves up an eye-popping extravaganza of fabulous '50s style ranging from T-Bird greasers and Pink Ladies to Rydell High cheerleaders and jocks, as well as elaborate dance numbers and dream sequences. This week the VFG is hopelessly devoted to mid-century fashion as we mark Grease's 45th anniversary.
