Ron Crist and Susan Williams' love story almost fits the story line of "Grease" to a T.

Williams, a beautiful blonde Australian exchange student, moved to a small town in Iowa in 1971 and immediately fell in love with the American high school experience, including going to prom with Crist. But unlike Danny and Sandy, there wasn't a happily ever after for the pair -- after graduation Williams went back home to Australia and Crist moved on to Colorado.

"It was the best year of my life," Williams told Iowa's KCCI News.

Though the two moved on, their connection wasn't forgotten. And when a sad turn of events happened to Williams, Crist -- once shy in high school -- worked up the nerve to reach out. To find out what brought the pair back together, 42 years after they first met as high school students, watch the video above.
