Did You Know?
The name “Hill Valley” is a joke, being an oxymoron. However, an early script for Back to the Future Part II (1989) mentioned that Hill Valley was named after its founder, William “Bill” Hill. There is an act at the Golden Horseshoe Revue in Disneyland’s Fronterland called “Billy Hill & The Hillbillies”. They have even released an album called “The Billys”.
A small hand-held submachine gun would only hold a maximum of 30-40 rounds in its curved clip-magazine, so there is no way that the Libyan terrorist could have fired so many shots at both Doc and Marty without changing clips. (Several contributors have pointed out that the terrorist is firing an AK-47. This is not a sub-machine gun but rather a full-fledged machine gun)
1985 Radio Announcer: October is inventory time, so right now, Statler Toyota is making the best deals of the year on all 1985-model Toyotas. You won’t find a better car at a better price with better service anywhere in Hill Valley. That’s Statler Toyota in downtown Hill Valley.
For the video release, “To Be Continued” was added before the closing credits. This title has disappeared from the DVD release.
Six minutes of footage were taken out of the film after a sneak preview in San Jose. One scene shows the 1955 Doc investigating his 1985 counterpart’s suitcase, discovering a hairdryer and a copy of Playboy.
