Things You May Not Know
Here are some things you may not have known about the Back to the Future. It’s pretty amazing how far we’ve come from the original airing of this amazing screenplay.
- Eric Stoltz was the Original Marty McFly: Before Michael J. Fox took on the iconic role, actor Eric Stoltz was originally cast as Marty McFly. After several weeks of filming, the filmmakers decided that Stoltz wasn’t right for the role and recast it with Fox.
- The DeLorean Wasn’t the First Time Machine Choice: Initially, the time machine in the script was not a car but a refrigerator. The creators later changed it to a DeLorean car, fearing that children might start climbing into refrigerators to imitate the film.
- John DeLorean’s Thank You Letter: After the film’s release, John DeLorean, the creator of the DeLorean car, wrote a thank you letter to the film’s producers for using his car as the time machine, which had become iconic due to the film.
- Crispin Glover Did Not Return for the Sequels: Crispin Glover, who played George McFly in the first film, did not return for the sequels. His absence led to a legal case that changed how actors’ images are used in film.
- Ronald Reagan Quoted the Film: Ronald Reagan was so amused by Doc Brown’s disbelief that an actor like him could become president that he quoted the film in his 1986 State of the Union address.
- The Clock Tower: The Hill Valley clock tower is an iconic part of the film. It’s set on the Universal Studios backlot and has been used in many other films and TV shows.
- Michael J. Fox’s Scheduling Conflicts: Michael J. Fox was filming “Family Ties” when “Back to the Future” was in production. He had to juggle both, often shooting the TV show during the day and the film at night.
- The Origin of Marty’s Last Name: The name “McFly” was inspired by producer Bob Gale’s artistic partner’s liking for the sound of the Scottish ‘Mc’ in names.
- Einstein, the Dog, Was Originally a Chimpanzee: Doc Brown’s pet, Einstein, was initially scripted as a chimpanzee. However, a Universal Studios executive commented that no movie with a chimpanzee ever made money, leading to the change to a dog.
- The Inspiration for the Story: Bob Gale, the co-writer, got the inspiration for the film when he found his father’s high school yearbook and wondered if he would have been friends with his father if they had gone to school together.
