To those of my generation this certainly ranks high on the list of John Hughes films that looked at the life of teenagers and as the late director himself said of Ferris Bueller, it was a “love letter” to the city he cherished most, Chicago.
While Ferris Bueller’s Day Off certainly had its fantastical elements like the clip seen above I remember it more for scenes like this one.
So I hope you take a moment on Saturday and give a tip of the hat in whatever way you can to John Hughes and Ferris Bueller, and let me dedicate this post to the Retroist, my fellow writers for the site, and most especially each of you that are kind enough to keep coming back every day to read what we share…it makes me feel like Ferris Bueller every single day.
