It’s time for another MoviefiedNYC trivia contest! We are celebrating the release of Kirk Honeycutt’s exciting book, John Hughes: A Life in Film: The Genius Behind Ferris Bueller, The Breakfast Club, Home Alone, and More, we are turning up the ’80s teen angst with a list of questions for the diehard John Hughes fan.
Author, Kirk Honeycutt, the creator of Honeycutt’s Hollywood (www.honeycuttshollywood.com/), has created an in-depth tribute to the legendary filmmaker that not only celebrates Hughes’ successful string of movies but also explores the darker side of the filmmaker’s extreme sensitivity and stormy professional relationships.
Honeycutt’s illustrated tribute to John Hughes takes readers behind-the-scenes as he explores the prolific filmmaker’s career by delving into his creative process, his important musical choices that so effectively set the tone for his films, the costume designs that defined his characters, and, of course, the acting careers that were launched by his films: Andrew McCarthy, James Spader, Molly Ringwald, Anthony Michael Hall, Macaulay Culkin. Filled to the brim with nostalgic photos, and also including interviews with Matthew Broderick, Ally Sheedy, Steve Martin, and Judd Nelson, this fun and insightful book is a definite must for any ’80’s film buff.
The first contestant to answer the most questions correctly will win their own copy of John Hughes: A Life in Film, and some semi-fabulous movie swag.
