Remembering John Hughes

From the recollections of Brat Pack actors like Molly Ringwald and Matthew Broderick to the lost notebooks.

After a wildly prolific decade of screenwriting and directing that made him the king of teen comedy, John Hughes receded from the cinematic landscape, his legend preserved by the classic 80s trilogy of Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, andFerris Bueller’s Day Off. Following Hughes’s sudden death, at age 59, last summer, the author delves into his intense connections and sudden breaks with his Brat Pack actors, as well as the essential anomaly of his brief Hollywood reign. Plus: Molly Ringwald, Matthew Broderick, and others share more recollections of Hughes; a selection of Hughes’s short stories; and a slide show of items in his archives.
