Rare archive podcast interview with legendary American screenwriter and director John Hughes.
Prolific director and screenwriter John Hughes, enjoyed a rich vein of extraordinary work in the eighties, and his impact on popular cinema cannot be underrated — The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller and Home Alone are just three of an iconic career. For me though, his work has been largely overlooked and sidelined by history — I guess it’s easy to do that with frothy comedy, especially when it’s wearing leg warmers and shoulder pads. I felt it twenty years ago, and I feel it even more now, John Hughes was one of the greatest American filmmakers. And it got me to Googling for interviews with the man himself. Blimey, there are precious few out there, he was quite a recluse. Above is the best one I could find, recorded by the AFI. So I decided to clean it up, convert it into a single file and upload for filmmakers who want to know more about the extraordinary and elusive talent that was John Hughes. Enjoy. —Chris Jones
By 1999, Hughes had retired from the business, moved back to Chicago, and become a bit of a recluse. Ferris’ was the only commentary he ever recorded and the track now stands as his final public thoughts on his work.
