Even though he found major success in the large, lucrative world of Hollywood filmmaking, John Candy never abandoned the much smaller and more modestly budgeted Canadian entertainment industry that had given him his big breaks. In the ’80s and ’90s, the A-list movie star concurrently dabbled in movies and TV shows with predominantly Canadian casts or which were not widely seen outside Canada. In 1981, Candy co-starred in Stripes, but also appeared in an episode of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s Tales of the Klondike. Two years later, he cameoed as a cheery security guard in Vacation but had a bigger role in Going Berserk, alongside SCTV pals Joe Flaherty and Eugene Levy. Candy had a big 1985, with roles in Summer Rental, Brewster’s Millions, and the CBC mockumentary The Canadian Conspiracy. One of Candy’s final films was the Canadian TV movie Hostage for a Day, which he also directed as it filmed in various Canadian locations, which according to IMDB, included sites in Newmarket, Richmond Hill, and Aurora, Ontario.

Candy also sent up his own pro-Canada sentiments. According to Rotten Tomatoes, one of John Candy’s last completed movies was the satirical comedy Canadian Bacon, in which he was cleverly cast as a patriotic American sheriff who tries to lead an invasion of Canada.
