Starring as the swaggering, leather jacket-wearing heartthrob Kenickie, alongside John Travolta, in the film version of the hit musical Grease brought Jeff Conaway global fame.

Conaway had already played Danny in the stage musical on Broadway but had to make way on screen for Travolta, who was hot property following his starring role in the film Saturday Night Fever.
