Rick Springfield

  1. Maxwell Caulfield, Grease 2, 1981.       Springfield, Shaun Cassidy, Greg Evigan, Bee Gee Andy Gibb, were in the loop for Cool Rider, the Aussie student at Rydell High for the totally unnecessary (and awful) sequel. Before the premiere, Caulfield was hailed as a new John Travolta. When it flopped, “nobody would touch me. It felt like a bucket of cold water had been thrown in my face. It took me 10 years to get over Grease.” Londoner Caulfield – in high school at 22! – has been wed to Hayley Mills’ sister, Juliet, since 1980.
  2. Charles Frank, The Right Stuff, 1982.  The Sydney-born singer-songwriter was invited by director Philip Kaufman to portray Scott Carpenter in the great movie about how thde space race top the moon began way back with the macho Mercury 7 NASAstronauts.  Springield. knew better. “I’d just gotten friggin’ Hard to Holdand I said: “I don’t need to be a part of an ensemble, I’m going to be a star in my own movie.” It was one of the stupidest fucking decisions I ever made.”
