Grease is the word . . . Released more than four decades ago, the film version of Grease is one of the highest-grossing musicals of all time and a bona fide global sensation with legions of devoted fans across generations. For the first time ever, the film's director, Randal Kleiser, looks back at the making of this legendary cultural landmark.
Created in conjunction with Paramount Pictures and authorized by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey (via his Estate), the creators of the original musical stage play, Grease: The Director's Notebook features rare and never-before-seen imagery from the studio's archives, as well as Kleiser's production notes, dialogue changes, and more. The book's heart is Kleiser's own heavily annotated shooting script, along with his storyboards and sketches--including lines from the play that were added to the film's script.
Comprehensive and beautifully designed, Grease: The Director's Notebook also includes all new exclusive interviews with the key cast members and crew, including Olivia Newton-John, John Travolta, and Stockard Channing, original script pages, call sheets, conceptual images, and more. It is a fitting tribute to this revered international phenomenon and the one book the movie's adoring fans will want.
