Back to the Future

This might not exactly a breaking news story automatically worthy of your attention, but it’s Back to the Future-related and we here at Geeks of Doom don’t need any more excuse than that.

io9 has published an extensive collection of candid production photos from the Back to the Future trilogy culled from various sources and fans of the Robert Zemeckis-directed movies. If you scroll down to the end of the article you’ll notice a trio of stills from the early days of filming on the original, back when Eric Stoltz was the first actor cast as Marty McFly.

You can check out those pics – along with a few I included just for fun – here below.

It annoys me to no end that Universal Pictures refuses to release any of Stoltz’s completed scenes on their countless reissues of the trilogy on DVD and Blu-ray. Last time, they went as far as to include some silent outtake footage. Maybe when Back to the Future makes its debut on microchips inserted directly into the brain it might happen.

The first two are of Stolz clowning around behind the scenes. Lea Thompson joins him in the second of the two.

Here is Stoltz and Crispin Glover filming the scene where Marty tries to convince his future father George to take Lorraine to the “Enchantment Under the Sea” dance.

In this photo, Stoltz and James Tolkan, who plays the humorless Hill Valley High principal Strickland, are either talking or rehearsing a scene while the crew prepares for the shoot. This was likely the scene where Marty had to cleverly escape from detention that was no refilmed when Fox replaced Stoltz.

Back to the Future

Melora Hardin, best known for playing Dunder Mifflin V.P. Jan Levenson on the hit NBC comedy The Office, was originally cast as Marty’s girlfriend Jennifer. After Stoltz was replaced by Fox, she was summarily relieved of her duties and Claudia Wells was cast in the role when production resumed. Here is Hardin and Stoltz posing for one of the photos that would have been shown fading due to Marty’s alteration of the timeline that lead to his birth.

Finally, we have Stoltz and his onscreen siblings (until he was fired) Marc McClure and Wendie Jo Sperber in another of the fading photographs and the one that would be used in the final film, but with Fox in place of Stoltz.
