This Week in 1986: 'Pretty in Pink'

You don't need us to tell you what an iconic movie 'Pretty in Pink' was. (Well, if you do, read this.) A quarter-century after its release (on Feb. 28, 1986), it remains the model for teen-romance movies, the dramatic peak of Molly Ringwald's career as a teen idol (also, the moment she graduated from John Hughes High School to enter the uncertain world of adulthood), and a defining pop-culture moment for Gen X–ers. Still, even if you've watched the movie dozens of times (as if this time, for once, maybe Andie wouldn't throw over Duckie for Blane), there still may be some things about it that you don't know.
