Nancy Kyes

  1. Stockard Channing, Grease, 1977.      At 28, the Virginian was too old but a better age for Rizzo than producer Allan Carr’s choice. At 33, Channing looked more like Rizzo’s momma. “Allan showed up on the set with a brown pencil and started dotting freckles on my nose, so I’d look younger. I just look[ed] dottier.”    Cinematographer Bill Butler was already using soft lenses on Olivia Newton-John, 29 and John Travolta, 23, while Carr closely examined all his “kids” for crow’s-feet. If ever a film required botox!
