Director And Writer John Hughes Died

John Hughes, the man behind the cam in such films as "Pretty in Pink", "Sixteen Candles", "The Breakfast Club", "Planes Trains and Automobiles", "Ferris Bueller's Day Off", "National Lampoon's Vacation" , and "Home Alone". John Hughes was also a contributing writer to "Animal House".

And those were just his hits.

If you were a young person living in the western world in the 1980s you were affected by this man.

He died today while taking a morning walk in Manhattan, and was fifty nine years old.

I only know this man through his films, and can only respond by saying - thank you for the incredible movies.
