So I remember the movie with a guy being in love with, or liking, this girl. And then toward the end, she comes by, riding on the back of a convertible with some friends, looking to be dressed for prom, and 1950s music is playing, and he realizes she is a ghost. The guy looks so sad and then she drives off.

I cannot think of it or find it anywhere and it is driving me nuts!!! Please help. I'm pretty sure it was an '80s movie.

    Hi, welcome to the site. In roughly which year or decade did you watch this? May 11 at 1:04

    @DavidW - It's not clear from the description whether Krissy actually saw the film in the '80s, or saw it more recently and just thinks it was released in the '80s. I always like to clarify that, because I've seen cases where the OP's estimate of when something was released was years or even decades off the mark. May 11 at 1:10
  • This actually sounds a lot like scenes that were dropped from American Graffiti

Could this be Susie Q (1996)? The final scene is very much as you describe, with the female lead in her prom dress being picked up in a 1950s car while the male lead watches.

The film tells the story of a teenager dying with her boyfriend (Bentley Mitchum) on her way to their Winter Formal back in the mid-1950s and coming back to her old house 40 years later in order to help her parents avoid being kicked out of their trailer park home. Later, Zach (Whalin) moves into Susie's (Johnson) old house, but he is the only one who is able to see Susie.
