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.
Alan Silvestri's orchestra for the score of the film was the largest ever assembled at that time (eighty-five musicians).
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...
The guitar cord Marty plugs into the amplifier in 1985 is a "stereo" TRS (tip, ring, sleeve) plug-equipped cable; it has 2 dark insulator bands going around the plug. The plug which Marty plugs into his guitar is a "mono" (1 band around the plug) right-angle-plug instrument cable. It is commonly thought that if Marty had been using a TRS cable he would have had another single-banded-plug cable hanging from his guitar (y-cable) but this is not necessarily the case, as a TRS plug can be wired with the ring and sleeve shorted together making the ring and sleeve assembly appear to the jack-socket as being connected electrically and mechanically, and so the plug's two separate contacts will now act as the same electrical contact, just like the right-angled prong that Marty plugs into his guitar.
