Happy Anniversary to Ferris Bueller. Remember his famous day off?
Ferris Bueller, who borrowed a 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder, caught a foul ball at a Cubs game and sang "Twist and Shout" while on a float during the Von Steuben Day Parade in his famous Chicago day off.
Today is the 30th Anniversary of the movie 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off'.
Based on shots and commentary from the Cubs game shown in the 1986 movie, which was directed by John Hughes and starred Matthew Broderick as Bueller.
According to The Chicago Tribune
, bloggers determined that June 5, 1985 was the skip day featured in "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" based on shots and commentary from the Cubs game shown in the 1986 movie, which was directed by John Hughes and starred Matthew Broderick as Bueller.
The actually filming for the movie took place months later. A story that appeared in the Tribune in July 1985 said filming for the movie was set to begin in September 1985.
Broderick and Alan Ruck (playing Bueller's best friend Cameron Frye) were actually filmed in the stands Sept. 24, 1985 at Wrigley Field.
No matter when the actually day was, the movie was filmed and released 30 years ago.
To this day, it still stands as one of those "best days ever" that we all try to achieve.
