John Hughes, the director of many films I enjoyed throughout my youth has passed away...
While walking with family in New York, Hughes suffered a heart attack. The director of "Sixteen Candles,"Ferris Bueller's Day Off" and "Planes, Trains & Automobiles," among others had become more secluded and withdrawn from the business of Hollywood in recent times, but his imprint on my childhood and adolescence will be forever.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the hearts of his family and friends...

Sixteen Candles and his other films are among my favorite teen movies. I like to watch them again for a laugh. The world has lost a great talent.
Damn. So much for Breakfast Club Reunion.
@John Bender...very thoughtful comment.
Guess this means no 46 candles either. :(
I'm surprised you didn't mention Hughes' involvement with 101 Dalmatians and Flubber, Honor, since this is a Disney-themed blog. Sure, they're not great movies, but they aren't terrible.
Oh how sad. His movies are among my favorites - the ones I watch over and over again. What a loss.
