Pretty in Pink

Though not a nerd by traditional standards, Phillip F. "Duckie" Dale of 1986's "Pretty In Pink" fits the profile of being a misfit, having questionable fashion sense and, of course, not getting the girl, played by Molly Ringwald (left). Word is Anthony Michael Hall turned down the role (played by John Cryer) for fear of being typecast.
