I heard this on the radio last night and am very sad to hear that the man responsible for so many wonderful movies that were such a big part of my 20’s has passed away of a heart attack at only 59 years old. John Hughes was one talented individual, and his films, music, and influence helped define the 80’s and youth on every level from hair styles, pop and punk music, what was in, funny, popular, and desirable. He made stars of so many young actors and actresses such as Molly Wringwald, Anthony Michael Hall, Alley Sheedy and so many others. John loved working with another great Man, Mr. John Candy, and worked with him ’till his untimely passing in the early 90’s. This is truly a sad day, and John will be so sadly missed. Here are some posters from some of my favorite Hughs films.
