I just saw that on tv and I was shocked. I think they said he was walking or had gotten back from a walk? I was guessing he was in good shape but you just never know. I, for one, loved his movies and he will be missed. I could watch the "Lampoon" movies (except for the European Vacation one) over and over again. Loved that "Cousin Eddie!"

I just bought Sixteen Candles a while back. Its one of those that I wanted because its just part of my childhood.
This is so sad for his family..........

Gin, so did I!! I got it like a month ago. What's really weird is that Brendan hadn't seen a bunch of the 'classic' John Hughes films, so we've been watching them over the summer.

And yes, gotta LOVE Vacation!! Honestly, out of all of them, that IS my favorite....like Misti I could never tire of it. Chevy was just so awesome, and Randy Quaid of course! Second fave was Breakfast Club though! Applause And the other day I watched Ferris Bueller's Day off. Bueller? Bueller??? grinsmiley

Very sad loss indeed...
