Halloween is almost here so you should party in style with a Danny Zuko costume inspired by the classic movie Grease!

If you want to read a little Grease trivia, here is an interesting movie fact. Originally the film producers of Grease were courting actor Henry Winkler to play Danny Zuko. If you remember during this time period, Winkler became the hit star of the classic sitcom Happy Days in which he played a cool and popular Greaser character named Fonzie. The show was set in the 1950s just like Grease. For obvious reasons, Henry Winkler turned down the movie role because he didn’t want to replay the same character archetype and be typecast as a 1950’s hood. So actor John Travolta ended up becoming the leading man. When you look back, can you imagine the actor who played the Fonz singing “You’re the One That I Want” with Olivia Newton-John at the end of Grease? Now it’s your chance to recreate this fun and exciting music scene for your next Halloween costume party!
