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.
Robert Zemeckis dubbed the picture "the film that would not wrap". He recalled that because they shot night after night, he was always "half asleep" and the "fattest, most out-of-shape and sick I ever was".
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...
After the DeLorean takes its first trip in the parking lot of the mall, you can see a lens hood in the left side of the screen as we see Marty and Doc immediately following the fire trails.
For the video release, "To Be Continued" was added before the closing credits. This title has disappeared from the DVD release.
