John Travolta has discussed the longevity of Grease saying he views it as being a gift to the public and to himself.

Travolta played Danny Zuko in the musical, which was released in 1978, and told The Independent, "Well my films have an interesting continuous effect. Grease for some reason never went away ... There is some magic to that particular film.

"There's other films like The Wizard of Oz and Gone With the Wind that don't either, but this has a continuous new audience, as opposed to, 'Oh, that's an old movie'. It just keeps on living. That's how I view it, as a gift to the public and myself as an ongoing thing."
