We'll always remember John Hughes for films like Ferris Bueller's Day Off and The Breakfast Club, but it's his Planes, Trains and Automobiles that's probably his most human film, a hilariously touching account of two strangers whose Thanksgiving travel woes force them to work together to get from point A to point B in the most ridiculously awkward ways. Steve Martin and John Candy have tremendous chemistry in this film, which at its core is about connecting through missed connections. God I love it.
Anyway, Gallery 1988 out of Los Angeles is doing a fun Steve Martin tribute show, which will include this ficitious (drats!) Plains, Trains and Automobiles toy set created by Mick Minogue. If this existed in real life, we'd be playing with it right now. [via Superpunch]
