To refresh memories of the Peabody farm in Back to the Future, here is the clip of Marty’s bumpy entry into 1955.
Two things of note about this scene that most people may not know:
* Marty arrived in 1955 at exactly 6:00 a.m. although that is not fully seen on the time circuits display. Writer and Producer of the Back to the Future Trilogy, Bob Gale, clarified this for us by sharing, “We thought 6 a.m. was sort of a default — a time to arrive when there’d be just enough light to maneuver, but little chance of being seen. As I recall, when Old Biff went back to 11/12/55, he also arrived at dawn, which can be seen when Doc programs the time circuits after he rescues Marty from the hotel roof.”
* Even though the DeLorean is seen exiting the Twin Pines Ranch at what is supposed to be dawn, the filmmakers actually shot that scene at sunset as the true geography of the filming location gives away that the sun is setting behind the mountains in the west.
