One thought on “Summer lovin’

  1. I’m surprised. I always thought of it as Saturday Night Fever without soul or truth. The Greaser/Prom Queen types were about social class, as I recall it, and being working class in the decades since those movies came out has been anything but joyous. I still choke up over that scene in SNF where the girls breaks down and tells Travolta’s character how out-of-place and desperate she has really been at work in Manhattan. I guess Grease has been all kinds of fun I missed, I just couldn’t forgive them for what I considered gutting of the real heart out of the story, which was the real confusion and heartache of the poor trying to “better” themselves.
