This rare poster with a delightfully peppy design by Linda Fennimore was released for the teaser campaign ahead of the summer 1978 release of Paramount's blockbuster musical romance Grease. Based on the Broadway musical of the same name, the feelgood film starred John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John as 1950s high school seniors and star crossed lovers, unexpectedly reunited at Rydell High after a summer romance. The film's infectious soundtrack, explosive energy and colourful nostalgia made it a phenomenal success, grossing $400 million worldwide, and becoming the highest grossing musical ever at the time.
Very good (B+)
Backed on linen. Prior to backing this poster had one vertical and three horizontal machine folds as issued. Backing and light colour touching has smoothed and diminished fold lines for display. Some darkening to white ground at edges and folds. Faint discolouration to white ground in upper portion where the paper was stored folded against the red outline of the title in lower portion. Image and colours otherwise excellent.
