Back to the Future - 1985
Movie: Back to the Future - 1985
Director: Robert Zemeckis
Synopsis: Historically, no McFly has ever succeeded at anything, and it looks like the same will hold true for young Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox). The only bright spots in his life are his guitar, his girlfriend and Doc Emmett Brown (Christopher LLoyd), the town's eccentric inventor. In a story with many layers of complexity and plot twists, Marty returns to 1955 in Doc Browns souped-up DeLorean - his time machine invention. Back in time, he inadvertently disrupts his own parents destiny, and must find a solution and get back to 1985 to save Doc Brown from terrorists and preserve the space-time continuum.
Scene: At the school's 1955 "Enchantment of the Seas" dance, the entertainment is provided by Marvin Berry and the Starlighters. When Marvin, the guitar player, cuts his hand and it seems that the music is over for the evening, Marty sees his parents first kiss, and his own existence, slipping away. He offers to fill in, and after the magic moment occurs during a slow dance - "Earth Angel" - Marty lets fly with a rendition of a song that he describes as "an oldie" - never heard before by the high-school audience - "Johnny B Goode".
Monogram: During this increasingly wild song, Marvin phones his cousin Chuck - who is also a guitar player and has been looking for a "new sound." The band's monogram - MB - is shown on the bandstand.
