Cat. #00080316: JOHN CANDY

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Quite scarce vintage 8x10-inch black and white portrait, boldly signed in black felt-tip marker in the late 1980s. In good condition, with minor handling dings. 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.
