    Ferris Bueller’s Day Off


    “While the rest of us were just thinking about it…Ferris borrowed a Ferrari and did it…all in a day”

    “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” was a so so hit for John Hughes when released in 1986 launching many of it’s cast on the road to Hollywood glory; Matthew Broderick, Charlie Sheen, Jennifer Grey etc. But it’s the car that Ferris and his pals steal that has kept the movie firmly in the spotlight, especially in more recent years as movie poster art & automobilia have become very, very collectable – it’s one of the most famous and coveted cars that a certain Italian named Enzo ever produced – a Ferrari (RED of course) 250 GT California. Although it was featured on the original cinema marketing campaign it was heavily stylised by the artist Adrian Perkis. So, it’s no surprise that when it was released on video in 1986, the Ferrari figured prominently with a beautiful photograph of the car – don’t worry Ferrari fans, Ferris has been photo-shopped lounging on the car – no Ferrari was harmed in the taking of the photograph. Rolled (as issued) this excellent original 1986 British video poster presents very well and represents a scarce item of collectable cinematic and motoring memorabilia…“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it”

    Trivia: John Hughes personally selected the songs for the film. He wanted them to be somewhat obscure to the typical moviegoing audience, feeling that he wanted everything about the film to feel new. For example, the song heard when the Ferrari is revealed for the first time (and during the final scene) is “Oh Yeah” by Swiss band Yello. The song was not a hit after its first release, but its inclusion in this movie rapidly popularized it, prompting a re-release. It has since been used in dozens of other movies and series, often in scenes featuring a desirable object or person.

    Trivia: The Vultures were originally going to be voiced by The Beatles. The band’s manager, Brian Epstein, approached the Disney studios about having The Beatles appear in the film, and Disney had his animators create the Vultures specifically to be voiced by the band. But when Epstein took the idea to the Beatles, John Lennon vetoed the idea, and told Epstein to tell Disney he should hire Elvis Presley  instead. The look of The Vultures, with their mop-top haircuts and Liverpool voices, are a homage to The Beatles; one bird’s voice and features are clearly based on George Harrison‘s. That’s What Friends Are For was originally to be done as a rock and roll song. When the Beatles departed the project, the song was rewritten as a barbershop quartet, to make it timeless.
