Marty McFly, a 17-year-old high school student, is accidentally sent thirty years into the past in a time-traveling DeLorean invented by his close friend, the maverick scientist Doc Brown.
According to an interview he did on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (1962), Crispin Glover lost his voice, due to nervousness, while filming this movie. For some scenes, he had to silently mouth his lines, with his voice being dubbed in later at a recording studio.
1985 Radio Announcer:
October is inventory time, so right now, Statler Toyota is making the best deals of the year on all 1985-model Toyotas. You won't find a better car at a better price with better service anywhere in Hill Valley. That's Statler Toyota in downtown Hill...
Just before the thunderstorm, when the time machine fails to start, Marty drops his head in frustration hitting the steering wheel which causes the horn to beep. The horn in the DeLorean DMC-12 is not operated by the steering wheel, but only by pressing the turn signal lever inward.
For the video release, "To Be Continued" was added before the closing credits. This title has disappeared from the DVD release.
