This year “Grease” is 40 and 40 years on, “Grease” is still the word.
I was lucky enough to to catch up with the original Pink Lady and beauty school drop out, Didi Conn when she was in London, with thanks to Now TV, celebrating this milestone.
The interview took place in (a replica of) “Frenchy’s” bedroom. The room where the famous slumber party scene happened – “Are you making fun of me Riz?”

She also shared what modern cinema can learn from the classic that is “Grease”.
