Era Defining Director John Hughes Dies

For anybody who went through their teens in the 80s the movies of John Hughes were cult viewing. Films he directed like The Breakfast Club, Pretty In Pink, Ferris Bueller's Day Off and Sixteen Candles form a part of our generation's cultural legacy, not to mention more general viewing classics like Planes, Trains and Automobiles and (as a writer) National Lampoon's Vacation.

Hughes has died after apparently suffering a heart attack whilst out walking on vacation in Manhattan. I suggest that a rousing listen to Simple Minds "Don't You Forget About Me" would be an appropriate send-off...
