Screenwriter/director John Hughes died Wednesday morning in NYC after suffering a heart attack while on a morning walk. He was only 59. I grew up on plenty of John's films like "Sixteen Candles", "The Breakfast Club", "Pretty In Pink", "Weird Science" and of my all-time faves "Ferris Bueller's Day Off". Hughes was also responsible for making Macaulay Culkin into a huge star with the "Home Alone" flicks. Hey, I'm an 80's kid and owe many thanks to John for providing me with many a laugh.
May John rest in peace.
