TV: Joe Pesci: 'Home Alone' filming involved 'serious' pain

Every year at Christmas time, "Home Alone" is broadcast or is available to viewers as a stream. In the well-known film, an American family leaving for a Christmas vacation forgets their youngest son, Kevin, at the family home near Chicago. In the sequel "Kevin - Alone in New York" something similar happens again, but this time in the eponymous metropolis.

In both films, the young leading actor, played by Macaulay Culkin, has to deal with villains who first want to rob his apartment building and later want to take revenge on the boy when they meet again in New York for the pain they suffered during their failed attempt to rob the boy. Because little Kevin knew how to defend himself against the gangsters - and without mercy.

As one of the villain actors now reports in an interview, the pain shown in the film that he had to endure was quite real. In the memorable scene where Kevin's booby traps set mobster Harry's hat on fire, actor Joe Pesci actually sustained serious injuries: "In addition to the expected bumps, bruises and general aches and pains associated with that particular brand of physical humor , I got serious burns to my head during the scene where Harry's hat is set on fire," Pesci said in an interview with People magazine. He added, however, that he was lucky "to have professional stuntmen doing the really hard stunts."

When asked if he would ever consider reprising his role as Harry in a sequel, the actor said it would be "difficult" because the innocent aura of the original films was difficult to replicate: "It's different now Time; attitudes and priorities have changed in 30 years."

For the ninth year in a row, "Kevin - Home Alone" will be broadcast on Sat.1 this year on December 24 at 8:15 p.m. This and the sequel film can also be found on various online platforms for (paid) time-independent streaming.
