Yes,  she was so beautiful and one of the most famous models around at the time.  Was one of the original Estee Lauder girls as well !  The picture of her as a bride was in all the magazines at the time as an Estee Lauder advert.

That was Timothy Hutton !   The movie was the Dark Half.  I read the book as well and it was so scary at the time.

Some sort of obscure ones but they were huge hits at the time.

@Genevieve Vavance  Sorry, I am hogging your thread.   One more -  How I love George Michael.  Such an under-rated singer and songwriter.  Gone too soon.

What a great vocal.  The original was brilliant.  Hated the remake that Shannon Noll did who as Molly Meldrum correctly stated is an average pub singer.   The Moving pictures original version below is a classic.  Just ignore the quality of the video clip though !
