S20E19: Molly Ringwald

In the 1980s, filmmaker John Hughes was the king of a certain kind of cinema, and his very favorite leading lady was teen idol Molly Ringwald. With a zest for the parts Hughes had written for her and a refreshing atypical beauty, Molly became one of the most famous faces of the era, and the performer of generation-defining characters. Her path departed from Hughes’s after Pretty in Pink, and the years since have taken her places she never expected going – including through a tough divorce.
