The infamous blank and white movie was called "Angels with Filthy Souls." In "Home Alone 2," it was called "Angles with Filthier Souls." A sequel as is Home Alone 2.
There is a scene where Kevin is walking past a driveway just as Harry and Marv are driving down it, and they stop just in time to avoid hitting him. This was achieved by having McCauley Culkin walk backwards, as the van was driven in reverse away from him; the film was then shown backwards. It's hard to tell - but if you look at the smoke from the exhaust, it's drifting toward the van rather than away from it.
Chris Columbus' father-in-law makes a cameo as one of the Chicago cops who check the McCallisters' home to see if Kevin is there.
