The book “John Hughes: A Life in Film” chronicles the film career of writer, director and producer John Hughes (1950-2009).

Hughes, born in Lansing, Mich., is best known for his hit ’80s flicks such as “Pretty In Pink,” “Sixteen Candles,” “The Breakfast Club,” “Weird Science,” “National Lampoon’s Vacation,” “Mr. Mom,” “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” “Planes, Trains and Automobiles,” “The Great Outdoors,” “Home Alone,” and so many more classics. His work on numerous films helped launch the careers of many actors.

This new book covers the films that Hughes worked on, features film stills and candid shots from production, as well as stories and blurbs by actors and staff working on the films.

It’s fun to go back through these great movies chronologically and remember how great they are.

Usually, this just means Jim, one of our partners, uploaded the article. There's an off chance it could be an intern, though, so be nice.
