The great John Candy died 19 years ago today.He was only 43 when he died of a heart attack.I'm not too sure what was the first John Candy film i ever saw.I think it was either Who's Harry Crumb? or Uncle Buck.

1 of my favourite films is Planes,Trains & Automobiles.The clip below is from 1 of my favourite scenes from the film.It still brings a smile to my face.

I loved most of his films, Planes, Trains and Uncle Buck being my two favourites. Such a sad loss to the film industry when he died. Can't believe it's so long ago now.

He was a very talented guy. Uncle Buck and Planes, Trains & Automobiles are two of my favourite films. Cool Runnings is pretty cool as well.

I remember being young and thinking that was sad he he died. He was a vibrant actor with a happy aura around him and this was encapsulated by his films. His cameo in Home Alone changed to the mood of the film towards it's climax.

19 years? Bloody hell, has it really been that long?

I do actually remember hearing it on the news.

I didn't like John Candy at first, but he grew on me. He evolved from a punchable film comic actor to 'Uncle John' over years. RIP.

Edit: I still can't remember which of these films I first noticed him: Stripes or Splash.

Great Actor especially Planes,Trains and Automobiles and Uncle Buck. i still struggle to hold it together in Planes,Trains when Steve Martin has the realisation n the train and goes back for JC who is sitting quietly on his own in the train station
