Ferris Bueller’s Day Off was probably one of the top five formative movies of my teenage years. I wore my original edition Save Ferris t-shirt until it fell apart. I loved The Breakfast Club too.

Thanks, John, for the movies and successfully reflecting the values of a generation – while being so cool about it.

UPDATE – This blog is amazing – from a lady who was John Hughes’ penpal for a couple of years in the 80s. It goes to show that not only sometimes Hollywood people are human, but also that John Hughes was truly an awesome human being.
