Spending the summer at a Catskills resort with her family, Frances "Baby" Houseman falls in love with the camp's dance instructor, Johnny Castle.
The film was re-released in 1997 solely due to a petition led by late-night talk show host Conan O'Brien, in which he asked viewers to send letters calling for the film's re-release. When exhibitors finally agreed, O'Brien joked that he actually didn't like the movie all that much.
Radio disc jockey:

When Baby and some of the other girls are practicing their dance routines, many of them are wearing 1980's style workout and aerobics clothing that was not in style in the early 60's.
