Here's Jill from NOTC

Good call Zach! So beautiful!
Just remembered that she was also in Thunder Run (1986)
I need to watch it again!

As a kid, I loved Lisa Eilbacher from "On The Right Track", but for whatever reason...only looks good to me in this one movie. Checked her IMBD, and....nahhh...not so much. But in OTRT....I'd have marred that girl when I was younger!

LOL, sorry about the double post! I must have hit the enter key a second time by accident. Mods, please feel free to delete the second post.

aTomiK, I haven't yet seen Thunder Run but it looks like it's worth a shot. I also enjoyed seeing Jill in her brief roles in Porky's (the girl who asks Meat how he got his name) and Weird Science (the perfume salesgirl). She is a very underrated actress who deserved more substantial roles. At least Fred Dekker recognized her talent and beauty and gave her a big part in Night of the Creeps.

I'd also love to check out another horror movie she did in the '80s, Twice Dead. It's now available on DVD as part of a double feature with The Evil from Shout! Factory. I've been meaning to pick up a copy at my local Newbury Comics along with some of the other titles in the Roger Corman's Cult Classics series (tons of great '70s and '80s drive-in movies for myself and fellow Rewinders!).

The Tampa Bay blog "Stuck in the 80s" did a podcast in January 2010 called the "Top 10 girl-next-doors of the 80s" and hosts Steve Spears and Sean Daly came up with their picks.

Steve's picks
1. Kristy McNichol - "Little Darlings"
2. Annabeth Gish - "Mystic Pizza"
3. Catherine Mary Stewart - "The Last Starfighter"
4. Diane Franklin - "Better Off Dead"
5. Jennifer Jason Leigh - "Fast Times at Ridgemont High"

Sean's picks
1. Danica McKellar - "The Wonder Years"
2. Elisabeth Shue - "The Karate Kid"
3. Phoebe Cates - "Gremlins"
4. Lucy Deakins - "The Great Outdoors"
5. Sarah Holcomb - "Caddyshack"

My Brother just bought The Evil/Twice Dead set and i have to check out Twice Dead soon.

I think that The Evil is a good haunted house flick.

Mike.. It was only 80's hangover, but Samantha Mathis was outstanding in the 80'sRocked fav "Pump Up The Volume"..

Always the same red paper, the same beautiful black writing. She's probably a lot like me, a legend in her own mind. Hehehehe. But you know what, I bet in real life she's probably not that wild. I bet she's kind of shy like so many of us briskly walking the halls, pretending to be late for some class, pretending to be distracted. Hey, poetry lady, are you really this cool? Are you out there? Are you listening?

I like Mia Sara too, but unfortunately for me, she went from a great girl-next-door in "Ferris Bueller" to taking her clothes off in a few junky direct-to-video erotic thrillers after that. A shame...she should have had a better career. She was married to Sean Connery's son, for goshsakes!
