If there’s a movie from the 70s that everyone has seen, it has got to be Grease. I don’t think I’ve ever met one person, who has never seen Grease, sang one of the songs, or even at the least watched a scene from the movie. This movie will always be a classic, no matter what people say… You can be elitest and keep your white noses up in the air, but you know that this is a classic movie.
When people think of Grease, they automatically associate greasers to:
1) Slicked back hair
2) Leather Jackets
3) Tight Jeans
Well, maybe not so much the singing, but when you hear GREASE, at least one song pops up in your head!
Summer Lovin. I won’t lie, I’ve sang BOTH parts of this song. Why not? IT’S FUCKING AWESOME!
If you had your lady with you in your car, and you played this song, you know you and her would be singing to one another like John Travolta and Olivia Newton John!
This honestly, is one of my favorite parts in the movie. Why? Because it really does tie in each character to one another, gives them their personalities, and is just a really fun part!
I’m gonna do a little pictorial breakdown of this part of the movie. Why? I have the time, and just wanna let everyone else know, what I noticed!
There are definitely more parts of this movie, that could be broken down, but this one just had a lot of great parts.
Especially where Jeff Conaway as Kenickie really tries his hardest to put on more of a performance, than just shooting for the movie. He gets really caught up in a dance, where he almost adds one extra step, but quickly caught his mistake and fixed it, and finished the shoot. Or when he pops his jacket off of his shoulders, do add a little more dramatic effect when the group goes “YEAH!”
This part, as John Travolta sings “summer fling, don’t mean a thing!…” and pops his collar… To me, is just the epitome of cool. There is just so much confidence in the lyrics and the action. Plus having all your buddies look up to you, doesn’t hurt. Kelly Ward as Putzie has quite a mesmorised look on his face…
Jeff Conaway and Kelly Ward… Not sure what to add here.
That girl with the pig tails on the right of Didi Conn creeps me out. Watch her skip behind Sandy, she’s creepy. This part especially, where she looks directly at the camera and screams her part…
Where the hell did this guy come from???
Jamie Donnelley as Jan, getting a little too friendly with that banana….
There is just so much to this movie, that movies like High School Musical and Hairspray will never touch. Although, I will say this. The small part I watched from Hairspray, I DID slightly enjoy! What? John Travolta in a 1960s movie!
