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.
Claudia Wells, who played Jennifer Parker in Back to the Future (1985), gave her role up to Elisabeth Shue for Back to the Future Part II (1989) and Back to the Future Part III (1990) when her mother was diagnosed with cancer.
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 Marty crashes into the barn he drives right through the open gate of the barn. But when we see him getting out of the car the gate behind him is closed or has miraculously been replaced by a wall.
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 the Brazilian dubbed version, the names of the two soft drinks that Marty asks for in the diner, are changed from "TaB" and "Pepsi Free" to "Coca-Cola" and "Pepsi", since both TaB and Pepsi Free weren't available in Brazil.
