When Marty rushes into the street to hail a cab after taking Clara home, he ends up facing the camera on the near side of the street, waving for a taxi while facing away from the oncoming traffic.
When Marty drops off Clara at her home after their evening out, there is an additional 5-minute sequence where she visits her parents in their bedroom and discusses her date with Marty (included in the CBS FOX VHS and the 2014 Kino Lorber releases, but deleted from the MGM Vintage Classics VHS and DVD).
