’80s comedy dynamo John Hughes, who allegedly “didn’t take care of himself” and “had bad eating habits, like that of a child,” according to a guy in the Hollywood comedy community, died on a Manhattan street this morning. Of a heart attack. My source heard Hughes may have been with his family when it happened, but he’s not at all sure and has heard otherwise. I love/loved one Hughes film in his whole canon — Planes, Trains and Automobiles.
