Candy had a string of hilarious hits int eh 1980s, but by the '90s his star was fading. His final projects didn't do his talents justice: He died of a heart attack while on location for the Western comedy "Wagons East." Producers said he'd completed all of his scenes, but there's some footage that looks like it was tweaked and recycled. That wasn't Candy's last movie, though -- that honor goes to "Canadian Bacon," a Michael Moore comedy that sets up a manufactured war between the US and Canada. Candy was Canadian, but he played an American sheriff who started the tensions by insulting Canadian beer.
