John Hughes, the venerable and generating-defining director of a host of superb teen films in the 1980s, has died.
According to reports on TMZ, Hughes died while taking a morning walk in New York after suffering a heart attack.
He was best known for his work in the mid-1980s, most notably the triumphant trio of Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club and Weird Science. More though, his finest moment was the immortal Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.
He will be greatly missed. Our thoughts go out to his family and friends.
RIP John Hughes.
