Five musical favorites, including "Grease" and "Saturday Night Fever," make up a special Dance Pack release this month as Paramount Studios celebrates its 90th anniversary.

"Grease," the 1978 hit that has remained the quintessential high school musical, makes its debut on DVD as it approaches its 25th birthday. Like the others in this pack, Grease" defined a generation.

John Travolta scored a big hit in the lead role in this movie, which also starred Olivia Newton-John, Stockard Channing, Jeff Conaway and Didi Conn.

Not many recall the many other, older stars who were in the movie, however. They included Sid Caesar, Eve Arden, Joan Blondell, Dody Goodman, Lorenzo Lamas, Michael Tucci and Alice Ghostley.

Another biggie in this set is "Saturday Night Fever," one year older than "Grease" and celebrating its 25th anniversary. The movie vaulted Travolta into major-star status. Karen Lynn Gorney played his dance partner.

"Flashdance" (1983) starred Jennifer Beals as a fiercely determined 18-year-old who was a welder by day and dancer by night. The movie, set in Pittsburgh, features two hit songs of the 1980s, "Flashdance --What a Feeling" and "Maniac."

In "Urban Cowboy" (1980), Travolta breaks hearts and mechanical bulls and has to prove his skills when an ex-con tries to steal his girl, played by Debra Winger.

"Footloose" (1984), full of Top 10 hits, finds Kevin Bacon in an uptight Midwestern town where dancing has been banned. He and his buddy, played by Chris Penn, decide to revolt. Lori Singer plays the daughter of minister John Lithgow.

The "Grease" DVD lists for $19.95. The others are $19.95. The set lists at $89.75.
