He's too young to die, or you're too young to remember his movies?

RIP Duckie, errrr I mean John Hughes......

John Hughes (director of Pretty in Pink) is no longer with us.

Here's one of Duckie's dance scenes that I liked.

No the guy that directed Breakfast Club and all those 80s teen movies passed away. Duckie is still here - at least I think so.

Duckie has plowed off this mortal coil? Did Blaine off him? BTW, Blaine is not a person's name, it is a name for a major appliance.
