DANE, November 29, 2013 (view all comments by DANE)
If you were a teenager growing up when these films were in the theatres, this is must-read material. Of course, the holy trinity of 16 Candles, Breakfast Club and Pretty in Pink takes centre stage but there are also chapters about St. Elmo's Fire, Ferris Bueller's Day Off and Say Anything. The Brat Pack played a huge role in the '80's movie scene and this book is full of interesting stories about what went on behind the scenes of these classic films!
