Wow, first Farrah and Michael, and now John Hughes. My adolescent and teenage years are fast becoming a faint memory.
Hughes either directed, produced (or both) some of the most popular and lucrative movies of the 1980's and early 1990's. A glimpse of his brilliance (WARNING: F-bombs aplenty):
"Life moves pretty fast. You don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." - Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986)
We'll miss you, Mr. Hughes.
UPDATE: A nice testimonial to the character of John Hughes. Robert Thorn, your admiration for the man and his body of work is well placed...
