Price Cut For The Home Alone House
The Winnetka mansion where the 1990 movie "Home Alone" was filmed has undergone a second price cut, to $1.95 million.
It's the latest price drop for the three-story brick mansion, whose owners, John and Cynthia Abendshien, allowed filmmakers to use the house in the popular movie and its first sequel. The Abendshiens listed it in May for $2.4 million and reduced their asking price to $2.18 million in June.
The owners, John and Cynthia Abendshien, had only lived for a year and a half in the house when Chris Columbus, the film's director, came knocking at their door.
"'Are you ready yet?'" the couple recalls Columbus asking. Prior to moving to the property, the Abendshiens were approached to have their previous home appear in "Uncle Buck," another film written by John Hughes and starring Macaulay Culkin.
Located in the well-heeled Chicago suburb of Winnetka, Ill., the 4,250 square foot, the three-story home looks just as picturesque today as it did for the 1990 theatrical release of the film.

If it was not for the telethon that my dad so carefully put together locally every year would I still have done something so important in my life as MDA Camp? My heart my soul my life and the way I live it every day stems from what this man has done for the world. Jerry Lewis opened the doors to a world that I can not imagine not being a part of.
For many Lewis will be remembered for his film and comedian career for me he gave my life a path that after 40 plus years I still follow to this day.
Every labor day even when our local telethon was already in full swing I would still find a TV set tuned into the main feed just to hear his opening monolog listing for the words "We found a cure" and every year …
A low-budget homage to the kitschy charms of B-grade sci-fi and horror movies premieres in London on this day in 1975 and will have its US debut a month later, but it won't make much of a splash either critically or commercially at first. Nevertheless, 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show" won't remain obscure for long, becoming a cult classic and midnight-movie mainstay and a Halloween staple to this day! Happy 42 Birthday Brad and Janet.
Sometimes google photos will make these random videos and this one takes the cake. I can not believe how much my little girl has grown up and the one thing that has not changed is that smile! I love these girls so much they are the light of my life!
