R.I.P. John Hughes – 1950 – 2009

John Hughes, director of many teen films from the 1980s, such as Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, died today of a heart attack at the age of 59.

This news is definitely sad, since many of the films he directed are today considered classics.

He will be missed.
