John Hughes, 59, Dies

The screenwriter, director and auteur of the ’80s teen-romp genre—National Lampoon’s Vacation, The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink, Weird Science and Ferris Bueller's Day Off, for starters (which launched the showbiz careers of a slew of actors like Matthew Broderick)— has died. Spend some time with his IMDB credits. Rest in peace, Mr. Hughes.
