Summer in the 1950s. Greaser Danny Zuko, leader of the high-school gang the Thunderbirds, has a romance with young Australian ingénue Sandy Olson. The two fall in love, but when vacation ends they have to split up, having first sworn eternal love. As it turns out, Sandy attends the same high school as Danny, which will threaten their relationship and collide with the boy’s reputation as a ladies’ man and The Pink Ladies’ wild ways. A new print with restored color, sound and resolution, marking the 40th anniversary of the film’s release.
