Remembering John Hughes

Vanity Fair did a great piece on John Hughes, director, writer and/or producer (or some combination) on major classics like Sixteen Candles, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, the Breakfast Club, Home Alone, etc.

From VF: "After a wildly prolific decade of screenwriting and directing that made him the king of teen comedy, John Hughes receded from the cinematic landscape, his legend preserved by the classic 80s trilogy of Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Following Hughes’s sudden death, at age 59, last summer, the author delves into his intense connections and sudden breaks with his Brat Pack actors, as well as the essential anomaly of his brief Hollywood reign."
