(John Travolta as Danny in “Grease”)

Take a trip down memory lane on August 16 at 20h00 when M-Net Movies Romance DStv Channel 107 presents Grease.

Move over disco, rock ‘’n roll is here to stay! In 1978 Grease, a breathless romp from the opening scene until the credits roll, outstripped the previous year’s Saturday Night Fever, another smash hit featuring John Travolta, at the box office.

Danny is a tough guy, but a beach encounter with Sandy, a gorgeous visiting girl, turns his knees into jelly. Much to his surprise, she pitches up at his high school at the start of the new term. He must choose between his image and his strong attraction to the shy and reserved new girl on the block.

The 1978 musical was directed by Randal Kleiser and starred John Travolta, Olivia Newton-John, Stockard Channing and Jeff Conaway
