Rydell High School was tough. You walked in looking like a spring chicken at fourteen but you graduated looking like you got your diploma ten years ago. Stockard Channing still holds the crown for the oldest actor to portray a high school student (at age 33) which she almost had to relinquish in 1990 to Gabrielle Carteris on Beverly Hills, 90210 (1990-2000). Aside from the obvious age difference of the cast, Grease is a classic and a bit of a conundrum. Despite being filled with sexual references, most kids were allowed to watch this movie. I didn't get half the things in the Greased Lightning number until many years later. And the incredible soundtrack will keep karaoke bars in business forever.
Grease was filmed in Malibu, Venice, Los Feliz, Huntington Park and Los Angeles, CA
