Olivia Newton-John: How Grease’s Sandy made history

It didn’t stop us. EVERYONE knew the lyrics to all the Grease songs (I still do). We acted out being Pink Ladies and T-Birds in the school playground. And Olivia Newton-John’s transformation from Sandy, with her twinsets and calf-length skirts, into an “electrifying” sex bomb in black skin-tight trousers was THE defining moment of the film (though I was always more loyal to Rizzo, played by Stockard Channing, the cool, front foot leader of that Pink Lady girl gang).
