Things you didn?t know about Back to the Future

Back to the Future can definitely be considered one of the best family movies of all time. But did you know that there are interesting?tidbits?that make the movie even more special?

  • For one, Bob Gale created the idea of Back to the Future when he saw his dad?s yearbook in the basement. Looking at the picture of his young father, he toyed of the idea of being friends with him if they were born in the same era.
  • The DeLorean, arguably became the symbol of the future (along with the hover board), almost did not come into fruition as the original time machine was supposed to be a refrigerator.
  • Einstein, Doc Browns lovable dog, almost became a chimpanzee in the original script!
  • Billy Zane?s first cinematic role was Biff Tanen?s pose.
  • And finally, we almost didn?t see Michael J. Fox play the lead role of Marty McFly. The character was offered to Ralph Macchio who turned down the role, and there was actually a time when it was Eric Stoltz who first filmed the scenes. Eric?s brooding good looks however, did not much Marty?s rather goofy character (thank god for that!).
