So John Hughes died today. I was familiar with those classic 80s movies, but never realized they were all done by Hughes. I looked at the Internet Movie Database to see his collection of work and found even more movies that I loved….
National Lampoon’s Vacation
National Lampoons European Vacation
Pretty in Pink
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
Planes, Trains and Automobiles (one of my all time favorite comedy flicks)
She’s Having a Baby
The Great Outdoors (seen this movie more than any other)
Christmas Vacation (a yearly standard at our house)
Dutch (Ed O’Neill is great in this)
My favorite fact? He wrote the lyrics to the Walley World National Anthem.
