Director John Hughes Dies in New York!

Here we go again people....
Another great....Director John Hughes is dead of a heart attack at age 59 while visiting family and friends in Manhattan, New York. He was evidently walking down the street in Manhattan and collapsed right there on the sidewalk!

He is best know for his teen comedies like the Breakfast Club (a great movie, no matter how old it gets!), and Sixteen Candles, but he is also known for making Macauley Culkin a star with the Home Alone movies too! Oh yeah, and we can't forget Ferris Bueller's Day Off, what a hoot that one was!! He was ahead of his time when these movies came out, and that is why they still stand today.

He had become somewhat of a recluse in the later years, not really writing or directing much of anything, in fact his last directorial job was in 1991 for Curly Sue, which introduced us to Steve Carrell. He is also loved for his movies, Pretty in Pink, National Lampoons Vacation and Planes, Trains and Automobiles.

He was so young, and so gifted....he will be missed. Luckily, he has left us with some wonderful movies to watch over and over.

Till Next Time,
Kat :(
