Classic Film Friday: Xanadu

Please tell, what is not to like about a roller/disco movie? Not much I'd say. Sonny Malone (Michael Beck) is an artist, but he seems stuck in a rut. Kira (Olivia Newton-John) is a ancient Greek muse, and she befriends Sonny. Meanwhile Sonny befriends Danny McGuire (Gene Kelly) an older businessman (with money, and nobody to spend it on) and the three of them come up with the idea of a roller rink-night club. Oh yeah, the movie has some ELO in it as well. Except for an ending that falls apart, this movie is good for the whole family... And it has roller skating. Roller... Freaking... Skating!!! Music, love, dancing, this movie has it all.
