Though the film Marty (1955) won the Academy Award for Best Picture in 1955, Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale say in the DVD QandA session that they were not aware of this fact when they named their main character Marty. Both films also have a diner owner named Lou. See more »
Doc's house number in 1985 is 1646 (no street name indicated), numbers are visible on the fence. When Marty arrives in 1955 and looks for Doc's house, he pinpoints 1640 Riverside in the telephone book.
However, in the opening sequence, the camera focuses on a news print claiming "Brown Mansion Destroyed". In 1955, Doc clearly lives in a large mansion, not the one story, half garage he lives in during 1985. It is conceivable that the mansion burned down between 1955 and 1985. Besides that, if Doc lived in the same place in 1955, Marty would not have to look him up, would have have no problem finding his home, and would not be surprised by the size of it as he is shown in the film.

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 Valley.

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. See more »
A funny sci-fi? Unusual but here it not only works but does so spectacularly. A whimsical but very clever time travel story that bedazzles you leaving you wanting more.
The charasmatic Michael J Fox plays a wonderful bumbling high schooler searching for love, a guitar gig and his existence which he himself threatens to erase.
Clever and humourous references litter this fun flick; references which are further improved upon in the sequels. Views of the same scenes from different angles, different perspectives and different timelines abound.
Fun for the entire family.
