Home Alone - Barry Hammond from Sunway

Did you know that Home Alone and the character of Kevin McAllister was actually based on Barry Hammond from Sunway? The true story goes that his parents left him behind when they went on a trip to Bunratty Castle. He later sold the rights to John Hughes at a very young age for the princely sum of two tickets to Funderland.


Of course, the writers in Hollywood exaggerated the story and it grew legs to become the Christmas Classic that we all know and love.
