“Grease” Remains Perfect Viewing for Summer Nights

Grease is the time, is the place, is the motion, and Grease is the way we are feeling. And probably always will be, because the flick is the ultimate summer fun movie. We know you’ve seen the film countless times and can sing and quote along to it, but we wanted to share some rarities related to the film with you.

First up, from a 1978 episode of The Midnight Special comes this live performance of the title track from Grease performed by Frankie Valli and The Commodores. It is the funkiest thing you will watch all week. You’re welcome.

Here’s an original TV spot for the film, spotlighting the performances of John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John

The Mike Douglas Show featured a visit to the set of Grease, and presented interviews with the stars and producer Allan Carr (himself the subject of an recent documentary)

We hope you enjoy these Grease obscurities, and share your thoughts on why you love the movie with us below!

We originally ran this post in 2018 and are reprinting it today as part of our tributes to Olivia Newton-John and our ongoing Summer of Blockbusters series.
