This subtitled re-release of Grease takes sing along to a whole new level. Sing along with the one of the best-selling soundtracks of all time, including now-classic songs such as “We Go Together,” “Summer Nights” and “You’re the One That I Want.”

In 1978’s biggest blockbuster, 1950s teens Danny (John Travolta) and Australian transfer Sandy (Olivia Newton-John) spend their "Summer Nights" falling in love, but once fall comes, it's back to Rydell High and its cliques.

It's all about being cool, cutting class, and getting a date for the big dance. Danny is still stuck on his summer love, Sandy, a "good girl" that his greaser cronies will be hard-pressed to accept. Along the way there are dance sequences, with appearances by a variety of pros (Eve Arden, Sid Caesar, Dody Goodman, Alice Ghostley and Fannie Flagg) and a winning performance by Stockard Channing.
