45 Years of Summer Lovin'

In 1978 a musical about high school students in the 1950s came out and has been beloved by many generations since.  When I was a kid I grew up watching Grease, and of course, singing along to the iconic soundtrack.    But since the movie did come out 45 years ago, if you need a refresher, here is how IMDB describes the movie plot:

Good girl Sandy Olsson and greaser Danny Zuko fell in love over the summer. When they unexpectedly discover they're now in the same high school, will they be able to rekindle their romance?
