Didi Conn returns to Frenchy’s bedroom as Grease turns 40
Didi Conn dug her Pink Ladies jacket out of her wardrobe to celebrate Grease ‘s 40th anniversary by returning to Frenchy’s bedroom.
The American actress came to London to mark the musical movie’s upcoming milestone.
And the jacket still fits perfectly.
Didi, who played beauty school dropout Frenchy in the 1978 movie starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton John, was invited to visit a replica of her bedroom built by NOW TV.
It’s the scene of the famous Pink Ladies sleepover and Rizzo’s hit song Look At Me, I’m Sandra Dee.
NOW TV hosted special screenings of the movie in Frenchy’s bedroom, but not before Didi took a look round first.
She said: "I’m so excited to be here, it’s like stepping back into my bedroom on set 40 years ago – all that’s missing are my Pink Ladies.
"What a fabulous way to reignite excitement around this family favourite film for such a big anniversary – I’m thrilled that we’re able to offer fans old and new a chance to experience the Grease magic for themselves."
The replica had everything from patterned pink wallpaper and plush carpets to satin-fringed curtains and Rydell High flags, as well as, of course, the giant panda toy poised to paw Rizzo’s silky drawers.
