How old was John Candy in his first movie: Class of '44?

John Candy was 21 in Class of '44 when he played the character 'Paule'.

That was over 51 years ago in 1973.

This was his first recorded movie acting credit (although may not technically be his first actual acting role).

In 1994 he died aged just 43, starring in 63 films in his career, 62 of those after Class of '44 was first released. If he were alive today he would be 73.
