Mr. Hector is the personal concierge at the Plaza Hotel in New York City.

Biography

Hector was a very pompous and sly individual and a bit of a bully when he becomes suspicious of Kevin. He presumed that Kevin McCallister had stolen his father's credit card, and as such, treated Kevin like a criminal.

On one night, he invades room 411 under the guise of housekeeping, to which Kevin scares him away by using an inflatable clown to impersonate his father while playing a recording of Frank McCallister singing "Cool Jerk" in the shower.

After Hector confirmed the card as being "stolen" and decided to bring Kevin to the police, Kevin escaped by using the film Angels with Even Filthier Souls scare him and the rest of the staff away. The film assisted Kevin to make outside characters think there were adults in the hotel room in which he was staying, whose conversation led to gunfire. After Kevin escaped, Hector ordered the other guests to stay in their rooms and that there is an insane guest with a gun.

As the McCallisters arrive in New York, they confronted Hector and the staff for letting him check-in without an adult and for scaring Kevin when they tried to question him about the credit card, to which Hector takes pride on. Kevin's mother, Kate, blamed him for making Kevin leave and slapped him for causing so much trouble. Embarrassed, he advised her to brace herself for the cold weather while trying to hold back the tears because of the slap and then offers them a complimentary suite; a penthouse with a view of the park that was recently vacated by the Countess of Worcestershire, as a token of apology.

He is never seen again for the rest of the film.

Behind the scenes

Mr. Hector is never addressed by his name, nor is he credited as such. He is simply credited as "Concierge". He was played by actor Tim Curry who is best known for his portrayals such as Dr. Frank N. Furter in The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Trivia

  • The scene where Mr. Hector trips on a coffee table while fleeing the suite after being frightened by Kevin was not in the script. Tim Curry actually tripped on the furniture and the director thought it was hilarious, and he left it in for the final cut.
