John Candy: Twenty of his best movies

, , ,

John Candy was a gem of an actor and comedian. The Canadian-born Candy rode the tsunami sized wave of comedy movies from the late ’70s into the early ’90s. Sadly, we lost John Candy in 1994 at the young age of 43. But he left behind a library of awesome content, which was his gift to us. Everything from Saturday Night Live skits and SCTV to small films and major blockbusters.
