Xanadu is a 1980 musical/romance film directed by Robert Greenwald. It is an unofficial remake of the 1947 film Down to Earth starring Rita Hayworth, as well as an unofficial sequel to the 1944 film Cover Girl in which Gene Kelly plays the same nightclub owner, Danny McGuire. The title of the film is a reference to the poem “Kubla Khan; or, A Vision in a Dream: A Fragment” by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, which is quoted in the film. Xanadu is the name of the Chinese province where Khan establishes his pleasure garden in the poem.
Xanadu stars Olivia Newton-John, Michael Beck, and Gene Kelly, and features music by Newton-John, Electric Light Orchestra, Cliff Richard, and The Tubes. The film also features animation by Don Bluth.
