If you remember the 70s, you know how big the 50s were then, due in no small part to the popularity of Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey's hit Broadway musical Grease, but it was the 1978 film adaptation that made it an international sensation. Everything about the movie came together—the cast, the music, the energy—and here director Randal Kleiser gives us a look at his own notes, taking us scene by scene through the script as sets are constructed, dances are choreographed, lines and bits are dropped or added, and unforgettable performances are created. Kleiser makes the reader feel like part of the production, in a book packed with film stills, production shots, actual pages, and personal memories.
