So sad. :( Whenever The Breakfast Club or Sixteen Candles is on I have to stop what I'm doing and watch. He will be missed.

the breakfast club is one of my favourite movies ever, molly ringwald was so gorgeous and so cool in 16 candles. I agree a part of my 80's youth just died too.

He was also behind Home Alone, Trains Planes and Automobiles... all my favorite movies from growing up (though most were made before I was actually born). So sad.

Super sad I loved his movies. It's nearly impossible to pass one of them as I'm flicking through the channels. It's going to make my weekend plans to go to the Hollywood Outdoor Cinema to see Pretty in Pink a bit sad.
