Lorna Luft

  1. Stockard Channing, Grease, 1977.         At 25, Judy Garland’s other  daughter was too old but a better age for Rizzo than producer Allan Carr’s favourite. 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.” If ever a film required botox! Luft later won the in a 1980 summer stock tour of the musical, then played Paulette in Grease 2, 1981. Greased Lightning, however, did not strike twice.
