Grease (1978) is director Randal Kleiser's film adapation of the 1971 musical about summer lovers, greaser Danny Zuko (John Travolta) and sweet Sandy Olsson (Olivia Newton-John). When Sandy's parents decide not to return to Australia, she enrolls at Rydell High and Danny has to juggle his affections for her and his tough guy image as leader of the T-Birds. Their fellow students have other issues to deal with. Rizzo (Stockard Channing) is worried she might be having Kenickie's (Jeff Daniels) baby, and Frenchy (Didi Conn) is considering dropping out to attend beauty school. There are two copies of this book to giveaway.
Director Richard Lester's A Hard Day's Night (1964) influenced movies the way The Beatles influenced music. Purporting to capture their lives in the midst of Beatlemania, the film follows the band as they travel from Liverpool to London for a TV show appearance. With the combination of Marx Brothers' zaniness and ingenious editing to the music, it's easy to see how the movie inspired the creation of The Monkees TV show and music videos. There are two copies of this book to giveaway.
