Back to the Future

PG; 116 mins; 1985 · Another movie that stars a car – the short-lived phenom DeLorean -- alongside Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly and zany mad-scientist "Doc" Christopher Lloyd, this beloved sci-fi classic was 1985's financial and popular hit. · High school shots filmed at none other than 'Tricky Dick' Nixon's own HS -- Whittier in SoCal, which is located on Philadelphia Street there. · So many seminal moments emerged from this exploration of high school drama, family dynamics and small town life in this time-travel adventure comedy… Calvin Kleins, the “ick” factor of contemplating one’s parents as lovers, ETC! · As someone in the UK dryly noted about 17 year old Marty: “he was the only one to get into trouble before he was born.” · Writers Zemeckis and Gale were turned down by more than 40 producers, including Disney who thought the film too “raunchy”, until Steven Spielberg said yes. The writers still own the rights and say there will be no remakes during their lifetimes of this now classic which won the Oscar for Best Sound and is IMBD’s 31rst top movie of all time.
