Vote: young movie actresses born between 1960-1975 that come to mind when thinking about the 80's.

You left out Lori Loughlin, Drew Barymore and Brooke Shields of totally hot chicks you!   BounceGiggle

Anyhow, I went with:

Molly Ringwald - wasn't she in at least half the movies made in the '80s?
Lea Thompson - such a cutie
Phoebe Cates - see above
Deborah Foreman - for Valley Girl and the Waxworks movies
Tawny Kitaen - who cares if she was in any movies, I chose her for that Whitesnake video  Thumbup

You also left out Linda Blair, Lana Clarkson and Linnea Quigley... they defined the 80s for me, at least.

"The basic plot is that Donna Speir and Hope Marie Carlton, the two undercover DEA agent Playboy Playmates from the last movie, are still running around in jungle shorts, cowboy boots and spaghetti strap T-shirts, firing their machine guns at drug smugglers, Filipino communist guerrillas, and corrupt federal agents while their two friends, Lisa London and Miss May 1984 Patty Duffek, lounge around the pool a lot and talk on speaker phones that look like fax machines."-Joe Bob on SAVAGE BEACH

I'm all for Tawny because she was in Witchboard, but Molly Ringwald and Daphne Zuniga (The Initiation, YEAH!) define the 80s for me.

Molly Ringwald
Demi Moore
Phoebe Cates
Ally Sheedy
Jami Gertz

In fact,each of these ladies were the epitomy of the decade.....with a mention of Mare Winningham.

I voted for:

Molly Ringwald (who rightfully should win this by a large margin, she's by in far the woman I think of when I think of 80s films)
Jennifer Grey
Daryl Hannah
Lea Thompson
Phoebe Cates

Surprised there was no listing for Melanie Griffith or Sigourney Weaver.

Focus was on the "younger" generation of actresses.
