John Hughes was best known for his 80's and 90's films, including "Sixteen Candles", "Ferris Bueller's Day Off", "The Breakfast Club", and "Some Kind of Wonderful".

He was born John Wilden Hughes, Jr. on February 18, 1950 in Lansing, Michigan. John was a prolific filmmaker whose sweet and sassy comedies captured audiences in the 1980s and 1990s. He was the guiding force behind some of the most popular teen comedies pf all time, including The Breakfast Club (1985), Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986), and hit family comedies like Planes, Trains and Automobiles (1987), Home Alone (1990) and Home Alone 2: Lost in New York (1992). His popularity started to wane after he penned the Home Alone blockbusters. From time to time, he surfaced again as a screenwriter, occasionally under his pen name, Edmond Dantès, the real name of the Dumas hero in "The Count of Monte Cristo." Having a great influence on youth culture in his active years, he helped launch the careers of many actors including Michael Keaton, Molly Ringwald, Anthony Michael Hall, Bill Paxton, Matthew Broderick and Macaulay Culkin. His withdrawal from the industry inspired a 2009 documentary, Don't You Forget About Me, created by four young filmmakers. On August 6, 2009, John died during morning walk in Manhattan. The cause of his premature death at the age of 59 was a heart attack.
