Sunday Movie Memories…

And today we bring you… Grease 2!

The first example I bring you from this marvelous movie is “Score tonight!”  How can you go wrong with a choreographed number set in a bowling alley!   And, the song features Lorna Luft, who, as you should know, is Judy Garlands daughter!    With her in the cast, how can the movie be bad?

Oh how I loved this movie.  Of course, I also loved the first one  (that had the Olivia Newton John factor, how could I not?)   But the second film had its own kind of charm.

I mean, where else can you find Michelle Pfeiffer singing “Cool Rider?”

I always wanted a cycle and a leather jacket, and I could be a T-Bird.

Or maybe I wanted a pink satin jacket and I could be a pink lady!

And, to end this post, because I can, here is Olivia…. with Hopelessly Devoted to You from the original.

Have a fabulous fifties inspired Sunday, or just have fun whatever you may be doing!

    Hey… when I was in high school, I actually did motorcycle and a leather jacket. But I wasn’t in a gang, and I didn’t sing about it, har har.
