Was John Candy Only Paid $414 For ‘Home Alone’

One of the biggest Christmas film franchises is Home Alone. John Candy’s Home Alone salary is surprising given his small role.

John offers Kevin’s mom Kate a ride home as the “Polka King of the Midwest.” However, His polka band and she must ride together. It’s one of the funniest scenes, carried by the comedy legend.

It’s hard to believe he only received $414 for his film role! John’s lines were all improvised, according to the director. “None of that stuff was in the script.” At 4:30 in the morning, the funeral-parlor story was improvised. We couldn’t keep a straight face on set listening to John.”

Candy died at 43 from a heart attack four years after his Home Alone appearance.
