Molly Ringwald Salutes John Hughes

Molly Ringwald Salutes John Hughes

The actress Molly Ringwald has written a lovely tribute to the deceased filmmaker John Hughes in the Times today, in which she remembers the movies on which they worked together--she calls Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club the director's "most deeply personal expressions"--and recalls what Hughes was like as a mentor and friend. Hughes apparently took Ringwald and Anthony Michael Hall to a Junior Wells concert in Chicago, and was known around the set for making "endless mixed tapes." Since his death, he's inspired quite a few more. Hughes was buried in a private ceremony yesterday north of Chicago; Matthew Broderick, Ben Stein, and Vince Vaughn were in attendance. This is still amazingly sad news.
