Fun facts of TBC
The BMW in which Claire arrives at school belonged to John Hughes.
Brian's (Anthony Michael Hall) real life mother, Mercedes Hall, played his on-screen mother.
Cameo - At the end of the film, John Hughes played Brian’s father.
Filming took place in a real school gym, which the studio turned into a library.
The same school was featured in Hughes’ Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.
Nicolas Cage was originally considered to play the role of John Bender, but production couldn't afford his salary at the time.
Then, John Cusack was cast as John Bender, but Hughes replaced him with Judd Nelson because he looked rebellious compared to Cusack’s boy-next-door looks.
"The Lunch Bunch" was a proposed title.
Eesh. Thank goodness he went with The Breakfast Club.
My favorite quote from TBC . . .
