Grease (1978) Director Randal Kleiser's film version of the hit Broadway musical about 1950s teen angst took the country by storm, inspiring a wave of nostalgia and receiving a slew of Golden Globe and Oscar nominations. In between flashily choreographed musical numbers, the film chronicles the romantic entanglements of a group of high school seniors, starting with a summer fling between greaser Danny (John Travolta) and good girl Sandy (Olivia Newton-John).
Betty Alexander Rizzo, known mononymously by her surname Rizzo is one of the main characters in the movie Grease. Tough and sarcastic leader of the Pink Ladies, she does not like to hang out with Sandy because Sandy is not tough enough. She smokes, drinks, and does not care what others think of her. Rizzo is also a girl with a "reputation". The girlfriend of Kenickie. In the 1978 movie, she is played by Stockard Channing.
