Abstract:

John Hughes was one of the best-loved figures in 1980s American filmmaking, and considered by many to be among the finest comedy writers of his generation. His motion pictures are insightful, humanistic, culturally aware, and paint a vibrant picture of the United States in a decade of rapid social and political change. This book examines all of Hughes's movies throughout the course of the 1980s, covering not only the films that he directed, but also the screenplays that he created during that decade. The book discusses his talents as a writer and director at the height of his powers, and describes his part in the production of films that would help to define a generation.--From publisher description.
