The brain, the athlete, the basket case, the princess and the criminal – on paper for the very first time.
A first draft of The Breakfast Club was just discovered in a filing cabinet inside an Illinois high school – in the same school district where it was filmed – more than 30 years after the movie came out.
The Breakfast Club opened in theaters on Feb. 15, 1985. It has since become a classic, celebrated not only for capturing the decade from which it originated but also for nailing the hapless, yet hopeful angst of teenage life in any decade.
Which is why we’re happy that Friday is National Cereal Day, celebrating Americans turning their backs on the pork, beef and alcohol they used to enjoy in their morning meals in favor of oats, grains and corn syrup.
