Blanche Hodel is a character in Grease and [[Grease 2.
In Grease 2, Blanche looked and acted pretty much the same as she did back when the original T-Birds departed; She was outgoing, friendly, and a bit goofy, her red hair always curly, always a smile on her face.
She and Mrs. McGee got covered with the Rydell flag when the students rushed the campus in Back To School Again. As the students poured into the school, Mrs. McGee and Blanche opened the blinds from their office window, and watched in alarm.
Later, in the principal's office, when Mrs. McGee tried to make the announcement, Blanche overdid it on the Xylophone, playing an extended welcoming tune `Suwanee / Swanee River', which Mrs. McGee stopped before it got out of hand.
Some time later, Blanche was in charge of the air raid siren, as since it was the Cold War with Russia, they needed to run hypothetical attack drills to keep the students safe. And that bugger was excruciatingly loud! After Mrs. McGee was finishing up her `Air Raid Siren’ Test’ announcement, Blanche grabbed the microphone and cried out in panic, "Boys to one side, girls to the other! Run, run, run!" Then broke down sobbing.
Blanche was present when Stephanie Zinone broke down onstage at the Talent Show, asking Mr. Stuart if he knew what was wrong.
At the Luau, after Lone Rider re-emerged and clobbered the Cycle Lords, she was the one who cried in joy “Michael! It’s Michael!!”
At the climax of the film, she and Mrs. McGee took the photos of the graduating students.
She was played by the late Dody Goodman.
