G is for Grease – my favorite movie

A favorite of mine that begins with G is Grease. It is my all-time favorite movie. It was my favorite movie growing up and still is today. I can recite every line – I’m not exaggerating. I first saw it in the theatre in 1978 when I was 5 – I still have my Grease tee shirt. I watched it when it came on tv, then taped it when Beta came out and watched it over and over. I bought it on vhs and then dvd, but still watch it when it comes on VH-1 classic, even though I own it and can recite it. I saw Grease again in the theatre on it’s 20th anniversary. I went everyday the first week it was re-released. I’ve also seen the play Grease several times all over, including Baltimore, Memphis and Dublin. Grease has its own shelf of memorabilia along side Brady Anderson, Elvis Presley and others. The big part of why I loved and love Grease is Olivia Newton-John, my first obsession and first scrapbook – more on her later. I also love Grease because it is set in the 1950s. Grease is like home to me, it comforts me.
