Funny and gentle, John Candy was loved by millions of movie fans for playing ture-to-life characters. Whether as the irrepressible bon vivant in Splash, the misunderstood slob in Uncle Buck, or the generous lonely salesman in Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, John Candy struck a perfect balance between self-deprecating humor and irresistible, emotional warmth. But behind the scenes, beneath the booming laughter, award-winning journalist Martin Knelman paints a compassionate portrait of john Candy--a man blessed by comic genius and goodness of heart who was ultimately an sadly undermined by self-doubt and misguided ambition.
