Olivia Newton-John Dies at 73; How to Stream Her Best Movies, Including ‘Grease,’ ‘Xanadu’

The singer and actress Olivia Newton-John passed away on Aug. 8 at the age of 73, after battling breast cancer for more than 30 years. In a decades-long career that included performances on screens large and small, iconic music videos, and incredible concerts around the world, Newton-John’s legions of fans have turned to her as a beacon of light for decades.

Her official Facebook page revealed that she passed away at her home in California surrounded by family and friends.

Though she only starred in 14 movies, beginning with her iconic turn as good-girl-gone-greaser Sandy in the 1978 movie adaptation of “Grease,” Newton-John was everyone’s favorite sweetheart. She teamed up with her “Grease” costar John Travolta two years later for “Xanadu” and even though her acting credits were few and far between after that, her talent and smile never failed to light up the screen.

    The Man from Snowy River is an Australian television series based on Banjo Paterson’s poem “The Man from Snowy River”. Released in Australia as Banjo Paterson’s The Man from Snowy River, the series was subsequently released in both the United States and the United Kingdom as Snowy River: The McGregor Saga.

    The television series has no relationship to the 1982 film The Man from Snowy River or the 1988 sequel The Man from Snowy River II. Instead, the series follows the adventures of Matt McGregor, a successful squatter, and his family. Matt is the hero immortalized in Banjo Paterson’s poem “The Man from Snowy River”, and the series is set 25 years after his famous ride. The first season was very much a soap opera with several story arcs, but the primary one concerns the arrival of Matt’s American nephew, who’s bent on revenge, certain Matt cheated his father out of the station Matt now owns. In subsequent seasons, there were shorter story-arcs, often featuring guest stars over a few episodes, and some episodes stood entirely on their own. Stars and guest stars of the series included notables and future notables Andrew Clarke, Guy Pearce, Josh Lucas, Victoria Tennant, Olivia Newton John, Tracy Nelson, Lee Horsley, Dean Stockwell, Chad Lowe, Jane Badler, Wendy Hughes, Hugh Jackman, and Frances O’Connor.
