Intermission: An Interview With John Hughes (1985)


In a break between posts, I am posting this rare 1985 interview with late director John Hughes (it’s strictly an audio recording). A remarkable master on creating genuine cinematic portraits of teenagers more than anything else (and with just as much humor as sentimental drama), he discusses a little on his professional transition from the advertising world to writing and directing films, gives backstory on casting 16 Candles and The Breakfast Club, and echoes his wariness about studio interference.

Here is part 1 of 5. Links to the other parts of the interview are listed below.
