Cat. #00080316: JOHN CANDY

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Quite scarce vintage 5.5 x 8.4-inch semi-glossy color card portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in fine-point blue felt-tip ink in the late 1980s or early 1990s. In very fine condition, with a few minor creases. After establishing himself on Canadian T.V.'s "Second City Television" (1976-1983) sketch comedy series, heavyset John Candy went on to a film career, playing exasperating, but lovable lugs in films like Stripes (1981), Vacation (1983), Splash (1984), Brewster's Millions (1985), Summer Rental (1985), Volunteers (1985), Little Shop of Horrors (1986), Planes, Trains and Automobiles (1987), Spaceballs (1987), The Great Outdoors (1988), Who's Harry Crumb (1989), Uncle Buck (1989), Home Alone (1990), Nothing But Trouble (1991), Only the Lonely (1991), Delirious (1991), Boris and Natasha (1992), and Cool Runnings (1993). He was also memorable in Oliver Stone's acclaimed biopic JFK (1991). Candy died tragically of a heart attack at the age of 43 and his autograph is highly uncommon in any format.
