The Story Behind 'Home Alone's Fake Movie Within a Movie, 'Angels With Filthy Souls'

"Keep the change, ya filthy animal." It's a line that I can't get enough of, and the one that stood out to me most the first time I ever watched Home Alone as a kid. The memorable scene shows Kevin McAllister making the most out of his newfound freedom by watching a violent, old-school flick called Angels With Filthy Souls, which he'd otherwise be banned from watching while his parents were home.

And while a lot of easter eggs in the Home Alone films continue to be discovered to this day, the story behind the black-and-white gangster film might be the most surprising. If you're like me and many other people, then you probably thought the scene was lifted right from an older movie in the public domain or with cheap licensing rights.
