RIP John Hughes

Director John Hughes suffered a heart attack today while taking a morning walk during a trip to New York City with family.

Hughes was best known for writing and directing some of my favorite films from the 1980’s - National Lampoon’s Vacation, Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, European Vacation, Weird Science, Pretty in Pink, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Planes Trains & Automobiles, Uncle Buck, Christmas Vacation, and Home Alone. He will be missed. I feel a little piece of my teen-hood died.

What was your favorite John Hughes film? My sentimental favorite is The Breakfast Club, but a tie for #1 would be Planes, Trains and Automobiles, Uncle Buck
