5 John Hughes Screenplays

Hey guys,

In light of the recent news on the passing of John Hughes, I thought I’d post a collection of his available screenplays.

There’s a continuously updated round-up of links
at Auteurs. Will Harris offers snippets of great John Hughes dialogue. /Film found a 47-minute interview with Hughes from 1985, and Mark Matousek spoke with Hughes that same year for Interview Magazine. There’s also an interesting link on some of his unproduced projects. One was called Bartholomew Vs. Neff, which would have pit Sylvester Stallone & John Candy against each other as feuding neighbors.

I could write volumes, but, alas, I shall offer 5 screenplays.

If anyone is aware of other available scripts, let me know.



National Lampoon's Vacation - April 30, 1982, 4th draft

The Breakfast Club – 1985 Shooting Script (possible transcript)

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off – July 24, 1985 Shooting Script

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation – April 14, 1989 draft

Home Alone – transcript with commentary
