Take a blast to the past and go Back to the Future!

If you could go back in time and meet your parents when they were in high school, would you befriend them or even like them? It was this hypothetical question that inspired screenwriter Bob Gale to write Back to the Future with writing partner Robert Zemeckis.

The story is a blend of science-fantasy and 1950s nostalgia: born into a seemingly unambitious family, Marty McFly lives in Hill Valley, where even the town is underachieving. However, Marty’s friendship with slightly-mad scientist Doc Brown leads to a time travel adventure that takes him to the town’s past. As moviegoers know, the slightest tampering with the past can affect the future, so Marty ends up having to play matchmaker to his parents in order to insure that he himself will even have a future!

One of the rare science fiction films also created as a comedy, this film was a huge success, grossing over $380 million worldwide. The film made a movie star of television’s Family Ties scene-stealer, Michael J. Fox. It also catapulted the producing/directing/writing team of Gale and Zemeckis into the league of major filmmakers whose films charmed audiences and critics alike. It even gave the song charts the Huey Lewis song “The Power of Love.”

The film was nominated for four Golden Globes®: Best Motion Picture - Comedy/Musical, actor Michael J. Fox, screenplay, and song. The film received the Academy Award® for sound effects editing, along with nominations for screenplay, sound, and original song.
