Personal Quote:

From where I sit, I see the digital cinema creating sloppiness on the part of filmmakers because they know if they really get in trouble they can fix it later. So they don't pay that much attention, and of course it costs a lot of money. See more »

Trivia:

He directed Marc McClure and Wendie Jo Sperber in four films: I Wanna Hold Your Hand (1978), Used Cars (1980), Back to the Future (1985) and Back to the Future Part III (1990). Wendie Jo Sperber also appeared in all four films. Although McClure filmed a scene for Back to the Future Part II (1989), this was cut. See more »
