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.

  1. To this day Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is in my top 10 favorite movies to watch. About the last panting in the video “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte” is one of my favorite paintings of all time. I got to see it in person at the Art Institute of Chicago back in May 2007.
