Short but nice doc

7/10
Author: bazmitch23 from Co, Derry, Northern Ireland

The cast and crew of Spaceballs talk about what a great man John Candy was, his biographer talked about that John would never auditioned for Second City, his friends talked him into it.

John did Splash and it was a big hit and then had a really successful career.

Ben Nye was great friends with him and told the story of during the filming of Once Upon A Crime in Monte Carlo, John hired a boat and stocked it with food and drink all just for the cast and crew and they went for a cruise.

They talked how there was no attitude or drug problems with John. That is the usual case for deceased stars; eg. John Belushi.

The biographer said that John's death was caused by being extremely overweight and filming the flop Weagon's East in Mexico in extreme heat was not a good combination.

Ben Nye gets teary when he talks about how he heard about John's death.

The funeral was held in LA and another funeral was held in Toronto for people who couldn't be in LA.

Finally they explained that his legacy will live on.
