Catherine O’Hara announces today’s AFI Movie Club selection: PLANES, TRAINS AND AUTOMOBILES. This hilarious road trip comedy mapping an unlikely friendship features the talent of AFI Life Achievement Award recipient Steve Martin. Director John Hughes and cinematographer Don Peterman also trained AFI Fellows at AFI’s Harold Lloyd Master Seminars.

 

DID YOU KNOW? PLANES, TRAINS AND AUTOMOBILES was John Hughes’ first comedy for adults after achieving success with teen-targeted films and marked his first R-rated film. When Paramount contested the rating, the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) upheld its decision, citing a scene in which the F-word was used 19 times. Steve Martin defended his character’s use of profanities, and the scene stayed in the final cut.
