  • The Grease Cast Tormented Jack Nicholson And Warren Beatty on Random Horror Stories From Behind Scenes Of Greas

    (#5) The Grease Cast Tormented Jack Nicholson And Warren Beatty

    Grease is a musical, so it's definitely not short on singing and dancing. This proved to be quite a problem for Jack Nicholson and Warren Beatty, whose offices were across from Stage 24 where the cast would frequently play dancing and singing games.

    "They were yelling at us to shut up, because they were trying to write, and we were making so much noise down here," Randal Kleiser, Grease's director, told Bustle.

    If you were forced to listen to "Greased Lightning" a hundred times a day while you were trying to work, you'd probably be a bit cranky, too.

  • (#11) Randal Kleiser Butted Heads With A Bee Gee Over The Theme Song

    Randal Kleiser was set with the Grease theme song. The original opening credits had a '50s song set to an animation filled with '50s references. It all made sense... but it was scrapped. Instead, Bee Gees co-founder Barry Gibb was brought in to make the new theme, but butted heads with Kleiser in the process.

    "I listened to the lyrics and they didn't seem right for the movie," he told Bustle of Gibb's theme song. "They seemed a little dark. So I asked if Barry wouldn't mind changing the lyrics to make them a little lighter ... his solution was, 'Why don't you shoot a serious scene?' Well, we didn't shoot a serious scene and slapped the song on anyhow, and no one ever noticed that the lyrics were totally wrong for the movie. They were distracted by the animation. It's good that I lost that creative choice, because it was a giant hit. I would flip on the radio and hear the song at every station."

    Even though Kleiser hated the song, it's hard to deny it works despite the darker lyrical content.

  • Those Blurred-Out Pictures In The Frosty Palace Almost Caused A Major Reshoot on Random Horror Stories From Behind Scenes Of Greas

    (#7) Those Blurred-Out Pictures In The Frosty Palace Almost Caused A Major Reshoot

    In the scene where Sandy is on a date with a jock at the Frosty Palace, you may notice a blurred picture behind her. This turned out to be a major oops that almost cost the production a good chunk of change.

    The picture behind Sandy is a Coca-Cola advertisement, but Pepsi had already made a product-placement deal with Grease producer Allan Carr. When Carr saw the Frosty Palace scene, he insisted that Randal Kleiser reshoot it with Pepsi products. This proved to be pretty costly and time-consuming, so they settled on blurring out the Coca-Cola trademarks instead and crossed their fingers that Pepsi didn't complain. Despite their efforts, they missed a red cooler which bore the competitor's logo.

    "We just had to hope that Pepsi wouldn't complain. They didn't," Kleiser said.

  • Olivia Newton-John's Pants Were So Tight She Had To Be Sewn Into Them Every Day Before Filming on Random Horror Stories From Behind Scenes Of Greas

    (#3) Olivia Newton-John's Pants Were So Tight She Had To Be Sewn Into Them Every Day Before Filming

    Olivia Newton-John's skin-tight pants were arguably part of one of the most iconic outfits in the history of film. The extra tight, black leather pants and off-the-shoulder top are still given nods in pop culture today – in fact, they inspired a signature pant design at American Apparel.

    The actress even admitted that the "pants changed my life" – but no one said it was easy looking beautiful. Newton-John's black leather pants were so tight that she had to be sewn into them every day before filming - especially after a zipper malfunction. At the end of the day, she had to rip them off only to start the whole process again the following morning.

  • John Travolta Was Mad He Didn't Get His Close Up During The Drive-In Scene on Random Horror Stories From Behind Scenes Of Greas

    (#9) John Travolta Was Mad He Didn't Get His Close Up During The Drive-In Scene

    After Saturday Night Fever, Grease made John Travolta legendary. The two back-to-back hits helped him sustain a life-long career, but that doesn't mean it was enough to quell his rising ego. Apparently, the young actor was pretty miffed that he didn't get his close-up at the end of the drive-in scene.

    According to Randal Kleiser, Travolta was asked to sit on a swing for a wider shot while the hot dog animation played on the screen behind him. He wasn't having it at all.

    "John says, 'Well, aren't we gonna do a close-up?' And I said, 'No, no, that was great.' He was a little pissed off, because at the end of the number, he wanted to have a close-up. But because the bun worked so well ... I said no," Kleiser admitted to Bustle. Luckily for Travolta, there were plenty of other close ups to be had.

  • It Was 116 Degrees During The High School Auditorium Dance Scene And Several Extras Got Really Sick on Random Horror Stories From Behind Scenes Of Greas

    (#8) It Was 116 Degrees During The High School Auditorium Dance Scene And Several Extras Got Really Sick

    The only thing hotter than Olivia Newton-John's black leather pants might have been the auditorium in Rydell High. It was upwards of 116 inside Huntington Park High School when the auditorium dance scene was filmed.

    According to Eddie Deezen, who played the minor role of Eugene, it was absolutely unbearable and the extras couldn't physically handle it.

    We filmed the big dance scene in a school auditorium (at Huntington Park High School) during a very hot summer," he wrote in a guest post on Neatorama. "The school was closed up, there was no air conditioning, and all the doors and windows had to stay closed because of light and sound control. It was reputedly 116 degrees in there while we filmed the dance scene over and over. Several extras had to be taken out because of heat-related illness.
