A Hughes success: ‘Home Alone’ turns 30

In the early 1980s, John Hughes began a new career as a comedy screenwriter. In addition to practically reinventing the genre of the teen comedy in the mid-1980s, Hughes would pen such classics as the “Vacation” series of movies, “Planes, Trains and Automobiles,” and a film that turns 30 today – “Home Alone” – that is still the highest-grossing comedy in movie history.
