Anyone who grew up in the ‘80s remembers The Legend of Billie Jean, the star of a young woman who stands up for what’s right along with a cadre of miscreant sidekicks. The film is a classic Gen X story of rebellion, and it still holds up even if it’s a little cheesy.

Weirdly enough, two of the film’s stars - Helen Slater and Christian Slater - aren’t related, they just have the same last name.

Even if you didn’t attempt to mimic the wild fashion in this movie, the lesson of being yourself and standing up for what’s right definitely stuck with you. That’s just what happens when you watch an important movie at a young age.

This American beauty is most well known for playing Pamela Barnes Ewing on the hit TV show Dallas, however she was actually retired when she took the role. Principal was working as a talent agent at the time and thinking about going to law school.

What I remember most about the first day of shooting Dallas was an unexpected feeling of deja vu. Everything was new to me; I was nervous, and yet I felt strangely sure that I was where I was supposed to be and with the people I was supposed to be with as though this had happened before.
