1. How long did it take for John Hughes to write the script for Sixteen Candles?

2. What was the first movie he directed?

3. John Hughes makes a cameo in Breakfast Club — which scene?

4. Part of the filming of Pretty in Pink was shot at Marshal High School (LA)—what other famous movie was staged there?

5.  Which girl was Eric Stoltz dating during filming of Some Kind of Wonderful (Watts or Amanda Jones)?
