Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
We miss you, John Hughes! We’ve missed you even before you left this world so prematurely, but we doubly miss you now.
Mr. Hughes created a genre just as surely as the Coens did. The John Hughes Film was so specific that even films he just produced are still, to this day, mistaken as ones he directed. Some Kind of Wonderful and Pretty In Pink, for example, are movies he wrote and produced, but didn’t direct.
His voice was unique, his way with young actors was easy and natural and his way with building characters was iconic. Nobody could match him on that. Ferris Bueller. Case closed!
Today we’ve got a shot of Hughes wedged between The Geek and The Princess on the set of The Breakfast Club, a movie that never gets old for me. Marry me, Ally Sheedy in The Breakfast Club! Thanks again to Pat Barnett for sending this one along (and it looks like it once again comes from Cineweekly).
If you have a behind the scenes shot you’d like to submit to this column, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tomorrow’s Behind the Scenes pic wants all the gold.
