On John Hughes

This summer has been especially hard on icons from the seventies and eighties.  While reading through the headlines, I discovered that John Hughes, director of such classics (do I use the term classic with movies that came out in the 1980’s?) as Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club has died.  I can’t tell you how many times we watched The Breakfast Club on grainy VHS tapes while we were supposed to be sleeping at slumber parties.

RIP   John Hughes


  1. Yes…I’d say “classics” is the right term. Such sad, sad news.

  2. Yes, classics. John Hughes films define the 80’s for me. I love ’em!

  3. He was brilliant. “Sixteen Candles,” “The Breakfast Club” and “She’s Having a Baby” were my faves.
