On this day 55 years ago...

Robert here, with a special look at this very important date.


On this day, 55 years ago...
George McFly and Lorraine Baines kiss for the first time, sealing a lifetime of love that would produce three children.


Also on this day, 55 years ago...
The Hill Valley Clock Tower is hit by lightning and hasn't worked since.

Yet still on this day 55 years ago...
Having just witnessed his parents' first kiss, a relieved Marty McFly invents a new kind of music.


And even more, on this day 55 years ago...
Local inventor/eccentric Doctor Emmitt Brown conducts some kind of experiment on the famous clock
tower.


And then, on this day 55 years ago...
Biff Tannen gets a visit from a familiar looking old man who hand him a sports almanac.


Following that, on this day 55 years ago...
Marty McFly, making his second visit, tails Tannen and retrieves the almanac, thus preventing the most dramatic city-wide deterioration since Pottersville.


And finally, on this day 55 years ago...
Marty receives a curious Western Union telegram that's been sitting around for decades.


And it all happened on this day, November 12, 1955.

Haha. Amazing. Both the movie, date, and mathematical error.

How much I'd like to jump in the DeLorean to go back in time and get that math right.

Correction now made.

Perfect post. What an important date in movie history.

Please tell me you didn't have to suffer Part II again to create this post. If so, I bow to your commitment to your blogging craft.

Funny, last weekend Back to the Future opened in my local movie theatres for the second time, after 25 years of its original release, remastered and with a great quality in image. I always saw this movie on TV and DVD, and watching it on theatres made me appreciate it in ways I had never thought before.

It was a real joy to watch the first film in the theater. I hope I have the same feeling when they show Part II in five years. At least, I hope they show it in theaters in five years.
