    Seriously, what a great filmmaker. His great movies are too numerous to list. The guy, whether writing or directing, knew how to make a funny and captivating story.

    Most notable to me is Planes, Trains, and Automobiles. Del Griffith is probably one of my favorite characters in his films, and what a funny but very, very poignant film. The end of that movie hits hard. Great stuff.

    RIP Mr. Hughes.

    He was the movies in the 1980s. Hardly anyone in that era who didn't owe him a huge favor for getting them great parts in his movies that didn't go on to bigger and better things at some point...
