John Candy

It’s already been 21 years since John Candy, star of Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, Uncle Buck, Spaceballs, Cool Runnings, and so much more, passed away in 1994 at the age of 43. If he were still alive today he’d be 65 years old, still too young to find out what awaits us after our time here on Earth—but unfortunately he left us far too soon many, many years ago.

Though I was still young when he died, Candy and his work were such a large part of my childhood that I still think of him from time to time and of course still enjoy his movies to this day. And, thanks to movies like Home Alone that are watched during the holidays every single year, younger people who might not have known who he was see him and might just seek out his other works because of it. The man lives on.

A tribute to John Candy was released recently titled Tell Me About John, which is composed of various clips of his work and recollections from those he had worked with. You can watch it below.

The concept for Brewster’s Millions is simple and really brilliant, yet incredibly complicated at the same time. Basically, it tells the story of a man who finds out that his super wealthy relative has passed away and left him a challenge which could see him inherit a massive fortune.

The challenge varied from movie to movie (seven movies before this eighth, to be exact), but the best-known is from the 1985 version that starred late greats Richard Pryor and John Candy. In this version, Monty (Pryor) is offered the chance to receive $300 Million, if he is able to successfully spend $30 Million within 30 days. This sounds easy at first, but there are some catches: mainly, he can’t own one possession when the money is spent, and he can’t just buy insanely expensive objects and destroy them, along with some other rules.
