"Edward Scissorhands" airs tonight at 10:30 p.m. ET

Tonight at 10:30 p.m. ET we are showing Tim Burton’s re-telling of the Frankenstein fable “Edward Scissorhands.” The movie stars Johnny Depp as the scissor-handed creation of a reclusive inventor (Vincent Price) who left his greatest work still unfinished when he died before finishing his sad-eyed invention and replacing his scissor-hands with real ones. Years after his creator’s death, he’s discovered living in a secluded mansion when a local Avon lady (Dianne Wiest) stops by and ends up bringing him home with her. There she introduces him to the wonderful world of The Suburbs, where he becomes something of a local celebrity due to his unique hairstyling and hedge-trimming skills. He also meets her pretty blonde cheerleader daughter Kim (Winona Ryder). She is smitten with the pale, mysterious Edward, but unfortunately already has a boyfriend — the high school’s thuggish star quarterback (Anthony Michael Hall) who causes nothing but problems for Edward from the get go. No spoilers as to how the dark tale ends, but when you see Ryder dancing in the snowflakes that Edward creates for her, you can’t help but smile. Ryder was always so good at projecting emotion off the silver screen whether she was playing a girl, interrupted in “Mermaids” or a dying swan in “Black Swan.” She had a hard fall from her career heights, but when she was good, she was very very good, and we’re sure she will be again.

Here are five of our favorite Winona Ryder roles:

5. Lelaina Pierce in “Reality Bites”

4. Amanda Grayson in “Star Trek”

3. Kim in “Edward Scissorhands”

2. Veronica in “Heathers”

1. Lydia Deetz in “Beetlejuice”
