His first film appearance was as a supporting player in Steven Spielberg's 1941, and from there he appeared as Joliet Jake's parole officer in The Blues Brothers in the same year. Unusually, many film critics believe that his best performance isn't any of his comedies, but rather is his cold-blooded, hostile performance as Dean Andrews Jr., a shady Southern lawyer in Oliver Stone's JFK. Candy struggled with obesity throughout his adult life, along with the accompanying problems of high blood pressure and diabetes. While filming his last movie (the amazingly craptastic Wagons East!), he suffered a fatal heart attack while sleeping, and died at age 43. In 1998, Candy was inducted into Canada's Walk of Fame, and in 2006, Candy became one of the first four entertainers ever honored by Canada Post by being featured on a postage stamp.
