the diretor of many of the hit movies of the eighties has passed ----he was 59 , so sad to see such a talented man leave before his time
A spokeswoman for John Hughes says the director of 1980s coming-of-age films like "Sixteen Candles" and "The Breakfast Club" has died in Manhattan.
Michelle Bega says the 59-year-old Hughes died of a heart attack during a morning walk. He was in Manhattan to visit family.
He made a teen star of Molly Ringwald with 1984's "Sixteen Candles" about a girl's nightmarish birthday on the eve of her sister's wedding.
Ringwald also starred in "The Breakfast Club," about a group of high school misfits during Saturday detention, and "Pretty in Pink."
Hughes also directed "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" and wrote "Home Alone." He lived in Illinois and set many of his films in the Chicago area.

It's sad to hear about a great director passing on. John Hughes is actually one of my favourite writer/directors. I absolutely love Ferris Bueller and Uncle Buck. Every Christmas, as far as I can remember, the family and I have always watched Home Alone 1 and 2. And the family and I have always been very big fans of the Griswolds. Another film franchise we watch a lot together.
Thank you very much, John Hughes for making really great films with the best lines!!!
