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.
This movie was one of the first to be shot at the Universal backlot, after an unusually long period of the studio not using their own site as a filming location.
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...
At the end when Marty is driving the DeLorean during the thunder storm, the street changes between shots of the street and closeups of the car. When the whole street is shown, it is cobblestone, but when the DeLorean is shown in a close up, the street is a normal asphalt street with yellow markers down the middle.
For the video release, "To Be Continued" was added before the closing credits. This title has disappeared from the DVD release.
