John Hughes Dead at 59

John Hughes

Director John Hughes passed away today. He suffered a heart attack while taking a morning walk during a trip to New York City to visit family. He was only 59.

Hughes directed such ’80s hit films as “The Breakfast Club,” “Pretty in Pink,” “Sixteen Candles” and “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.” He was a favorite for many here at The Retroist and he will be missed.
