Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[ on 'Back to the Future'] I don't know that part one was necessarily hugely cutting-edge. It was a very good melding of mechanical effects, where you can't tell where one ends and the other begins. So we're proud of that. This was way before we had computers or anything digital to do this stuff.. It holds up really well, and is probably the best time-machine film ever made.

Trivia:

Frequently works with director Robert Zemeckis on projects such as A Field of Honor (1973), the Kolchak: The Night Stalker (1974) episode "Chopper", I Wanna Hold Your Hand (1978), 1941 (1979), Used Cars (1980), Back to the Future (1985), the Amazing Stories (1985) episode "Go to the Head of the Class", Back To The Future II (1989), Back to the Future Part III (1990), Amazing Stories: Book II (...
