John Hughes, Jr. (February 18, 1950 – August 6, 2009)
I post...they croak...what manner of hell hath i wrought?
the critically acclaimed director of National Lampoon's Vacation; Ferris Bueller's Day Off; Weird Science; The Breakfast Club; Some Kind of Wonderful; Sixteen Candles; Pretty in Pink; Planes, Trains and Automobiles; Uncle Buck; Home Alone and its sequel Home Alone 2: Lost in New York. He was the teen movie director of a generation and in my humble opinion a genius of comedic timing and humour.
poor guy, he will be missed.
