Photo of the Day: Dazed and Confused Turns 20 Years OldSep 24, 2013 @ 12:24 pm
On September 24, 1993, the film Dazed and Confused opened in theaters everywhere and showed us how cool it was to be high school seniors. Now 20 years later, it’s considered a classic and in honor of the film’s anniversary, we picked our favorite photo moment of the senior cheerleading squad made up of Deena Martin, Michelle Burke, Joey Lauren Adams, and Parker Posey in their ‘Seniors’ shirts. Based in May of 1974 in the suburbs of Austin, Texas, the movie chronicled the last day of school at Lee High School, where rising seniors took over the high school and a fresh crop of freshman boys and girls entered the scene. The film also featured a young Ben Affleck and Matthew McConaughey years before Affleck got his start as a director and before we knew McConaughey’s abs in Magic Mike.
