Back to the Future turns 30: How the world looked in 1955, 1985 and 2015

1 July 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

In the run-up to Back to the Future's 30th anniversary on July 3, Digital Spy presents a week of special features celebrating the time-travel classic.

Has it really been 30 years since Back to the Future first arrived in cinemas? The '80s classic is one of those films that stands firm under repeat viewings, retaining its humour, heart and on-point performances from Michael J Fox, Christopher Lloyd and co. Simply put, there isn't a frame out of place in Back to the Future.

Though Robert Zemeckis's film still feels as fresh as ever, the world has changed dramatically across the three main periods the Back to the Future series spans. Digital Spy digs deep into the history books to find out how the world looked in 1955, 1984, and where we are now.

Born Lesley Sue Goldstein in New York City on May 2nd 1946 Lesley Gore passed on February 16, this year. She never tried her hand at acting (to my knowledge) yet she appeared in several films and many television shows singing one of or more of her considerable string of hits in a very strong voice, for such a little lady.

It’s My Party is probably her most famous and well remembered song but Judy’s Turn To Cry, Maybe I Know, Sunshine Lollipops, You Don’t Own Me and several other songs charted during her long career. She never resented being consigned to the »

It's Not Just 'Blurred Lines': Listen to 6 More Soundalike Songs

11 March 2015 10:45 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Wait, doesn't that sound just like … ? From Lady Gaga and Madonna to Vanilla Ice and David Bowie, the music industry has always been rife with song rip-off accusations. On Tuesday, Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams were ordered to pay a whopping $7.3 million to the estate of Marvin Gaye for lifting the beat for their 2013 hit "Blurred Lines" from Gaye's 1977 song "Got To Give It Up." Though she songs do sound awfully familiar, the lines between "inspiration" and "theft" are definitely very blurred. (Williams told jurors during the trial that he must have just "been channeling that feeling, that late-'70s feeling, »
