From the Brat Pack. From 1983-1986 Ally Sheedy was big time. The Breakfast Club, St. Elmos Fire, Wargames, Short Circuit. That’s a phenomenal resume. Post 1987? What in the world happened? And Sheedy was very very hyped back in the 80’s. Personal problems did lead to her demise but it’s a shame. Her best movie post 1987 was by far Only the Lonely which was a pretty solid flick.
*I could also bring up Molly Ringwald here.
