John Hughes

1991 NATO Showest Producer Of The Year Film (John Hughes)

Sticking with the John Hughes themed stories that have carried over from last week with Flack’s Ferris Bueller novelization post and the ‘Museum scene’ from the film with John Hughes commentary.

What we have here is the short film made to honor the late Director and Producer for being selected as 1991’s Producer of the year by the National Association of Movie Theater Owners. In this short film you’ll see plenty of cameos from the many talented people that Hughes had worked with up to that point in his career, he had just released Home Alone the year before.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Ferris Bueller Paperback Book

I ran across this paperback last weekend while out thrifting.

I think what I enjoyed the most was the irony that Ferris spent the majority of his high school years trying to avoid reading books, and now he has been immortalized in one.

Principal Ed Rooney has a message for all you fans of the Retroist: “Stay in school and read more books!”

Oh, yeah!

Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off – Museum Scene With John Hughes Commentary

I’ve stated before that Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is one of my favorite films from my youth, it probably speaks the most to those of ‘my’ generation. This last weekend though something occurred to me that mirrored almost exactly what Cameron(Alan Ruck) experiences and how he reacts in this moving scene from one of John Hughes best. Thanks to the YouTube clip below you can listen to the legendary John Hughes explain some of his reasons for the artwork included in the scene as well as it’s connection to Cameron.
