It was released on my birthday, October 10th, in the year 1986.
It was directed by: Francis Ford Coppola and starred:
Paul R. Gurian
Her grandmother is played by a true Hollywood golden age actress, Maureen O'Sullivan. O'Sullivan was most famous for playing Jane in the 1930s and 1940s Tarzan movies, but was also in such great films such as Pride and Prejudice and David Copperfield. She died in 1998.
Long before she became well known in the TV series 7th Heaven, and even prior to going off to space with Captain Kirk to take care of whales in Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (Although that movie came out later that same year), Catherine Hick starred in Peggy Sue Got Married as one of her two best friends.
“If you believe it, darling, then I believe. Being young is just as confusing as being old. The things that happened to me fifty years ago are more on my mind than things that happened today.”
Peggy replies. “But I’m remembering the future.”
Her grandmother responds. “Right now you’re just browsing through time. Choose the things you’ll be proud of…things that last.”
How many of us would love to have a scene like this with a beloved person who had died?
