Final Results of the Recent Grease Poll

When asked which Sandy you preferred in the film version of "Grease", 70% of you chose the good one. Had I voted, that would have been my choice as well.

I wonder how many viewers were disappointed that Sandy changed her image in order to get Danny. Allegedly, the reason that Marie Osmond turned down the role of Sandy in the film is because she didn't like the fact that Sandy had to turn bad to get the boy. Ironically, Sandy probably didn't have to go through the transformation. After all, Danny also felt the need to change his image too in order to fit into Sandy's world. The bottom line is that they both could have remained true to themselves and they would have been accepted by the other.

Here are the final results:
Good Sandy- 70%
Bad Sandy- 30%

Below is a clip of "good" Sandy duetting with "bad" Danny on "Summer Nights"

The reason you cited is the exact reason I prefer good sandy over bad sandy. I did not know Marie Osmond was up for that part! I love Marie, but I can't see it.

The Rock Chick: I recently found out about Marie Osmond being up for the part. I think she could have pulled it off; at the very least she would have been a much more believable high schooler than Olivia (who was around 30 at the time), lol.

Did you happen to catch the Osmond's 50th Anniversary concert on PBS? I caught some of it earlier this week. Along with the brothers, Marie performed too.
