If the lines, "Does Barry Manilow know that you raid his wardrobe?," "What's happening hot stuff?," and "Bueller?," mean anything to you, chances are you grew up watching the films of John Hughes. Hughes died today of a heart attack during a morning walk in Manhattan. He was in New York visiting family. Alex Cohen spoke earlier with Russell Scott of Retroland.com. It's a social networking site dedicated to nostalgia. Scott told KPCC's Alex Cohen, despite John Hughes being the king of teen angst, his favorite Hughes movie was Planes, Trains & Automobiles, starring John Candy and Steve Martin.
