Trivia

In the early scenes "the Clock Tower" shows no damage to the concrete ledge below the clock. However the damage, caused by the Doc character, does exist when the Marty character returns to 1985. A Bell Jet Ranger helicopter flies overhead & directs a light to accentuate & clearly show the damage. The change clearly delineates that Marty returned to an alternate time line.


Quotes

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...


Goofs

When Doc is at the Twin Pines mall and tests the DeLorean with Einstein, it appears that the car runs with an automatic transmission: Doc doesn't move any shifter mechanism or clutch on the remote. When Marty gets into the car shortly thereafter and for the rest of the movie, the DeLorean has a manual transmission.


Crazy Credits

The character Marty McFly is credited as a performer on the song "Johnny B. Goode". It is actually sung by Mark Campbell with a guitar solo by Tim May.


Alternate Versions

In 1955, Marty's mother calls him "Calvin Klein" because of the name found on on his underwear. The Italian version changes the name to "Levi" (as in Levi's jeans) because at the time of the film's release, the Calvin Klein brand was still not very well known outside the United States. In the French version, the name was changed to "Pierre Cardin" for the same reason.
