John Hughes
has died of a heart attack.
Hughes suffered the heart attack while taking a morning walk during a trip to NYC to visit family.
He was 59.
Consider just a few of the films he made in his lifetime:
  1. Home Alone (1990)
  2. Christmas Vacation (1989)
  3. Uncle Buck (1989)
  4. The Great Outdoors (1988)
  5. She's Having a Baby (1988)
  6. Planes, Trains & Automobiles (1987)
  7. Some Kind of Wonderful (1987)
  8. Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986)
  9. Pretty in Pink (1986)
  10. Weird Science (1985)

  12. The Breakfast Club (1985)
  13. Sixteen Candles (1984)
  14. Vacation (1983)
  15. Mr. Mom (1983)
The many late night hours we spent in the theaters and renting videos with friends wouldn't have been the same without Hughes' numerous contributions.

Here's one of the first of what will be many tributes to Hughes featuring the famous museum scene from FBDO.
