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 Marty's supposed age of seventeen (by 1985), he was born in 1968, thirteen years after his parents met, during his first adventure in the past (in 1955).
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...
In 1955, Doc tries to read Marty's thoughts with a huge device on his head. After Marty says he's from the future, Doc starts saying "Do you know what this means? It means that this damn thing doesn't work at all". During his sentence, he tried to untie his strap under his chin and it's obvious he's struggling. He doesn't finish untying it, but in the next shot the device is in mid-air.
For the video release, "To Be Continued" was added before the closing credits. This title has disappeared from the DVD release.
