Olivia Newton-John (for the film Xanadu),
on the cover of Photoplay (October 1980).
Picture Trivia
          In 1980, Olivia Newton-John declined the role offered to her in the film Can’t Stop the Music by the Village People, and instead made the film Xanadu. Unfortunately, Xanadu, which was expected to launch Newton-John as a solo star didn’t make good in the American box office.
          The title of the film Xanadu was derived from the name of the summer capital of Kublai Khan’s Yuan Dynasty in China. This was taken from the poem of Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834) Kublai Khan.

    1. I got her bio from another source. A Phil. Daily Inquirer source also listed September 15, so I have corrected it. Thanks.
