Like the film versions of such classic stage musicals as Guys and Dolls and Carousel, Grease (1978) abounds with awesome songs and a dynamite cast but suffers from flat-footed direction. Somehow, that didn't prevent it from becoming one of the highest-grossing movie musicals ever made. The new 'Rockin' Rydell Editionâ?� DVD comes packaged in a black faux-leather jacket (with zipper) and boasts another round of digital remastering. Among the bonus features are singalong versions of musical numbers, including 'Summer Nights,â?� 'Look at Me, I'm Sandra Dee,â?� 'You're the One That I Wantâ?� and, of course, 'Beauty School Dropout,â?� variously sung by Olivia Newton-John, John Travolta, Frankie Avalon and others. In one featurette, Stockard Channing, who played potty-mouth tough girl Rizzo, reveals that her famous make-out bruise was bestowed on her neck by Jeff Conaway, who played her boyfriend; that, of course, makes it a genuine hickey from the actual Kenickie.
