Back in Time

Synopsis: A look at the very real impact the Back to the Future movies have had on our culture. What was once a little idea that spawned a tightly-focused documentary has grown into something truly amazing over two years of filming. Back in Time is a cinematic monument to the vastness of the trilogy's fandom. In addition to the footage and interviews revolving around the time machine itself, the crew found that simply by delving into the impact of the trilogy an epic journey began to unfold before them. The crew captured countless hours of footage during filming. From Steven Spielberg to Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale, to the Sheas and Hollers, and from James Tolkan and Lea Thompson to Christopher Lloyd and Michael J. Fox, Back in Time features interview after interview that simply must be seen.

just made a movie called "used cars."

I'd produced their film

"used cars"

Over at Columbia with them.

I really believed in them

so much.

Bob Zemeckis brought me

a USC short film he had made

Just before I went off

to direct "jaws" in 1974.

It was called "field of honor."

Stop, or I'll shoot!

And I came back from "jaws,"

came back from that experience,

And we began hanging around,

and we were friends.

Bob gale, Bob Zemeckis, we used to go

shooting skeet and trap with John Milius.

And we were sort of... it was Milius,

and me, and gale, and Zemeckis,

And that was the team

for a long time.

Frank price,

the head of the studio, loved "used cars."

And he told us when we had our next idea,

please... he wanted to hear it first.

So we went in, and we pitched frank,

and frank got in immediately,

And Columbia hired us

to write "back to the future."

They pitched me

"back to the future,"

And I liked... I've always liked


So this was old home week.

I grew up on science-Fiction.

As a writer, you aspire

to write something like this.

You want everything to be the

"back to the future" screenplay.

You want everything set up

perfectly paid off.

You want every character to be complex,

three-Dimensional, compelling.

I think it's the best thing that I've

ever written. Along with bob, of course.

But even... it's...

you probably have one of

those in you in a lifetime.

Columbia had been

extremely successful

Between 1978, when I went there,

And this is now 1982.

"Blue lagoon" turned out

a huge hit.

"Kramer" was a huge hit.

We had "tootsie," "karate kid."

So coca-Cola bought Columbia,

And that was a huge revolution.

And there were some problems of fit,

though, once coke was there,

Because coke prided itself
