I read in an article years ago (I haven't ever been able to find it again) that Candy was struck by a piece of camera equipment during filming. It was totally accidental and they tried to cover it up as best they could during filming.

There were several locations in the film but a few outside shots were taken in Gurnee, Illinois (that's outside Chicago) at The River Trail Gardens and Inn located at 36355 Route 41, Gurnee, IL, 60031. It's a motel they used in (I think) that scene where Steve Martin and John Candy have to share a bed? The building doesn't really look the same anymore but you can go see it!
