Script for one of the classic musical films of the 1970s, directed by Randall Kleiser and starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. Filmed in various southern California locations, it takes place in an unidentified area near a beach in the late 1950s. All of the iconic Los Angeles locations used cause the viewer to assume this is set in California, although that is never clearly stated in the dialogue.
This film was a major triumph for gay impresario Allan Carr, who served both as writer and producer on this film. Carr was a major figure in entertainment history. He achieved great success as a talent agent and as a stage and film producer, with the Broadway production of LA CAGE AUX FOLLES and with the film adaptation of GREASE. He also became a subject of ridicule for his production of the extremely campy 1989 Oscars award ceremony.
