It seems like the 1950s were in vogue in the 1980s. There were quite a few films in the 1980s set in the 1950s. Some of them were actually good. Here are a few.
PEGGY SUE GOT MARRIED (1986)
BACK TO THE FUTURE (1985)
STAND BY ME (1986)
I don't want to live in the 1950s, but I wouldn't mind visiting.
