Lea Thompson starred in Back to the Future, Red Dawn, Some Kind of Wonderful, and All the Right Moves. To say she was a symbol of the eighties would be an understatement.

Joseph Grey's rating:
In Back to the Future(I), Claudia Wells played Marty McFly's girlfriend Jennifer (why was every girl named Jennifer in the 80's?). She also starred in the short lived "Fast Times" television series. My biggest crush as a kid was for Marty's Girlfriend Jennifer.

Joseph Grey's rating:
Sean Young was in two movies that helped shape my childhood: Blade Runner and Dune. I'm pretty sure my thing for wavy/curly hair comes from her.

Joseph Grey's rating:
What didn't Ally Sheedy co-star in throughout the 80's? I remember seeing her in Wargames, Short Circuit, and The Breakfast Club as a kid.

After seeing Mia Sara in Legend I was melted. After seeing her in Ferris Bueller's day off, I died and came back to life. I exaggerate, but you get the point.

Joseph Grey's rating:
Remember Labyrinth? Before she was getting her life ruined in Requiem for a Dream, she was looking for her brother in Laybrinth.
Joseph Grey's rating:
I remember seeing Kelly Preston in Space Camp and Twins. I think a big part of the reason I watched Twins every time it aired on HBO was because of Kelly Preston.

I watched Amanda Pays first in the television series Max Headroom, and in the movie Leviathon. She brought beauty and refinement to both a fictional television station, and an underwater research facility.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Jami Gertz really did a great job of playing a reluctant vampire in Lost Boys. Like the character Michael, I would have considered becoming one if it meant being with her.

Joseph Grey's rating:
Seeing Kristy Swanson in Buffy the Vampire Slayer (movie) and Mannequin: On the Move was enough for me to agree to a childhood crush.

Kerri Green played the all important 'girl of someone's dreams' character in both The Goonies and Lucas.
Joseph Grey's rating:
After Scarface and before Batman Returns, Michelle Pfeiffer starred in a movie called LadyHawke, which is the role that I remember her in first. It was also in seeing this movie that I decided that I had a huge kid crush on her.

Maryam D'Abo was in the James Bond movie The Living Daylights. Although she wasn't a really good Bond girl, I found her attractive ever since.

Joseph Grey's rating:
I remember Tamlyn Tomita from Karate Kid Part II. She was the most memorable and interesting of the females in the Karate Kid movies.

Demi Moore played a rebel musician in One Crazy Summer. She also acted in a number of roles with Rob Lowe, Emilio Estevez, Ally Sheedy and many of the other well known young actors of the 80's. She was a definitely a staple of the 80's, and one of my favorites.

I liked all of the women in the Indiana Jones trilogy. But the one I found the most attractive was definitely Alison Doody, as the selfish and manipulative Elsa.

Joseph Grey's rating:
Long before Fairuza Balk was in the Craft, she was in a TV movie called "The Worst Witch." Ever since then, I've liked her in just about everything she's in.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Olivia d'Abo played as the girl in Conan the Destroyer, as well as Karen in The Wonder Years.

Winona Ryder's most memorable role of my childhood was of Lydia in Beetlejuice. I've liked her ever since.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Christina Applegate in Married with Children. I also liked her in Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead. Really, she could have done anything, and I would have liked her, because I had a mad crush on her.

Joseph Grey's rating:
I can't believe I forgot about Kathy Ireland. Her image showed up in commercials and television frequently during the 80's. I thought she was the pinnacle of beauty when I was five years old. I remember being mesmerized watching her in a little known sci-fi movie called "Alien from L.A." ... It was so amazingly bad it was good.

Joseph Grey's rating:

Going back to my early days, there were some faces that really stuck with me as being especially memorable. They must have, because I remember them twenty years later.

I may add more, if more come back to memory.
