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...
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.
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.
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.
