'80s teen flick director John Hughes dies in NYC
NEW YORK Writer-director John Hughes, Hollywood's youth impresario of the 1980s and '90s who captured and cornered the teen and preteen market with such favorites as "Home Alone," "The Breakfast Club" and "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," died Thursday, a spokeswoman said. He was 59.

Hughes died of a heart attack during a morning walk in Manhattan, Michelle Bega said. He was in New York to visit family.

A native of Lansing, Mich., who later moved to suburban Chicago and set much of his work there, Hughes rose from ad writer to comedy writer to silver screen champ with his affectionate and idealized portraits of teens, whether the romantic and sexual insecurity of "Sixteen Candles," or the J.D. Salinger-esque rebellion against conformity in "The Breakfast Club."

Hughes' ensemble comedies helped make stars out of Molly Ringwald, Anthony Michael Hall, Ally Sheedy and many other young performers. He also scripted the phenomenally popular "Home Alone," which made little-known Macaulay Culkin a sensation as the 8-year-old accidentally abandoned by his vacationing family, and wrote or directed such hits as "National Lampoon's Vacation," "Pretty in Pink," "Planes, Trains & Automobiles" and "Uncle Buck."

Other actors who got early breaks from Hughes included John Cusack ("Sixteen Candles"), Judd Nelson ("The Breakfast Club"), Steve Carell ("Curly Sue") and Lili Taylor ("She's Having a Baby").

As Hughes advanced into middle age, his commercial touch faded and, in Salinger style, he increasingly withdrew from public life. His last directing credit was in 1991, for "Curly Sue," and he wrote just a handful of scripts over the past decade. He was rarely interviewed or photographed.

Shouldn't this be in OT? unsure.gif

I mean it's sad that he died, but it's not supposed to be here.

He absolutely made the teen movie genre what it is today. Not that they are just teen movies, that's the point John Hughes made movies that people of all ages loved and relate to. He created the 'nerd wins the girl and is is the rises to the occassion' type of teen flick. Which is very popular today 'Seth Rogan, Michael Cera anyone. Wouldn't be what they are without John Hughes. thumbsup.gif

Ferris Bueller's Day Off is one of my all-time favorites and I still watch Home Alone every Christmas.


Wow, he died the same way and about the same age as my grandfather did years ago.

I'm gonna try to watch National Lampoon's Vacation. One of my favorite summer movies. Maybe The Breakfast Club and Pretty In Pink too. I've haven't seen them yet.


I know, eh? crying.gif

Thankfully, seems like Patrick Swayze won't be leaving us just yet.

The Breakfast Club is iconic. It's also a damn funny movie. My kids were born in the 90's, so they missed what the 80's were all about, but they still love it. And Ferris Bueller's Day Off, of course.

I'd recommend The Breakfast Club to anyone. It still stands the test of time.
