Grease is the word. Without question the hit movie is an American touchstone loved by audiences young and old for the last 40 years. But before its 1978 release no one foresaw that a $6 million movie dismissed as “cinematic cotton candy” would become the highest-grossing movie musical of the 20th century and produce the top-selling movie soundtrack in history.
Through the words of those who brought the movie to life, Grease: Behind Closed Doors explores how the movie was able to beat considerable odds thanks to its high-gloss exuberance, the sheer talent of its actors and an unforgettable score. Natalie Morales hosts this 40th anniversary special.
