    I chose to write this project on the movie Grease. Growing up, this was my favorite movie. I chose to write about this movie because I haven't watched it since I was a child, and wanted to look back and reflect if there was anything I hadn’t picked up when I was younger watching this movie. The movie was made in 1978 by director Randal Kleiser, and was based on high school teens in the 50’s. Since it was based in the 50’s and most of us grew up watching this famous movie, I thought that there had

    In the movie “Grease,” John Travolta portrays the character, Danny. Danny especially struggles throughout the movie trying to figure out exactly who he is. It remains very common for teenagers to struggle with identity while going through different stages of their lives. Identity is a self-definition or sense of who one is, where one is going, and how one fits into society. As much as Danny does not want to see it when he is around certain individuals he acts much different than what he does around

    The year is 1959 and America is going through one of the most pivotal moments of its cultural history: when rock gave birth to the Sexual Revolution. Grease, considered by some to be “A fantasy of the 50’s” (Canby) and “50s nostalgia fun” (Boyle), is in fact a direct parallel and excellent representation of America’s turbulent graduation from the 50s to the 60s, from repression to freedom, from calmed to riotous. This hour-and-fifty-minute roller coaster of a movie inspired by a rowdy, concupiscent

    An Evaluation of Grease My film that I choose was Grease because it contains music, dancing and humor. It is a cross between comedy and teen movies. It is a tribute to the Broadway show of the 1950's. It was directed by Randal Klieser and was released on July 7th 1978. The music and dance scenes are what attracted me to Grease.

    The Icon of Grease Will Never Lose Devotion For a movie released in 1978 it still holds true to the drama of high school and the cliche of summer love. Grease became a classic for the same reasons as American Graffiti, it explored the life of teens and culture during the fifties. The film director Randal Kleiser cast a previous academy award nominee, John Travolta and rising Australian star Olivia Newton-John and it now is the epitome of their careers. The musical is a romantic comedy that takes
