Pretty In Pink is one of the most iconic coming of age movies for teenagers, but the Movie is far from its teenage years. Today, it turned 30 years old. Feel old? Well you can feel like a teenager going to their prom all over again when you download the Digital HD version of it.
Not only do you get a beautiful copy of the movie, you get several bonus features that answers questions fans wanted to know and some they didn’t even know they wanted to know. Did you know that Paramount wanted Jennifer Beals to play Andie? Robert Downey Jr auditioned for Duckie and Charlie Sheen was up for Blane? Even Annie Potts’ role almost went to someone else, but that actress had not perfected her American accent by then. Another fun fact, John Hughes wrote Sixteen Candles looking at Molly Ringwald’s headshot even though he had never met her at that point. He also wrote Pretty In Pink for her.
They also talk about the iconic fashion from the movie. Who went to the prom and who didn’t? That ending. What really happened? Who wore a wig? The record store dance scene was choreographed by Kenny Ortega who did High School Musical and Hairspray.
All of this is told by the cast and crew in 1985 and twenty years later. Craziest part, none of the actors aged. Just like he movie, everything about it is ageless.
