I even had Spielberg one they come up to me on the set and say "Crispin I see you got your million dollars" and I was like "What?!"
What about the brilliant Christopher Lloyd?
“All the costumes you see on the Hill Valley residents were amazing, there is a bit of the 1980s ‘big shoulder’ feel to the lot of them, if you read the ‘Back to the Future: The Visual History’ by Michael Klastorin check to see the designs that Joanne came up with… They’re just remarkable.”
I think it took us, from getting outside the front door of the McFly house through the kitchen scene, the better part of two weeks.”
But they would leave me up there while everyone was going get a coffee I'll be on the set alone, twiddling my thumbs going “Hello! Is anybody here?!””
make-up team actually cut his hair… I heard that Ken Chase was trimming Crispin’s hair once when he was dozing in the make-up chair, but Crispin woke up and flipped out! He also disappeared for a weekend when he was needed for a shot and it was nowhere to be found...
I remember us doing that for one of the crucial scenes, where my character is crying over my dead daddy's body. The actor playing my brother didn't have his Mark… and I had to take his and almost kicked Doug McGrath in the head because I slipped… and I said to Clint “Chuck didn't hit his mark… This and this didn't go right” but he said “No, it looks fine, we'll just cut from your face…” and I couldn't argue with that!”
I was beginning to get the impression, by all the shifty looks while he was talking, that Jeffrey was lacking confidence with my machine... So I thought, well now is better than ever to try it out and prove to him that I wasn't crazy .
"Right" I instructed Jeffrey, "You stay here and document everything you see." I set the destination and return time on the dashboard "I'm heading back to the old west and should be back here in, as you perceive, instantaneously... So hold on to your hat, anything could happen... I'll bring you back a souvenir"
I slowly backed out of my drive and down the road a little; I had plenty of room...
I revved the engine and with a last thumb up out the window to Jeffrey, sped off... Getting to 45miles an hour wasn't going to take long to achieve! I got faster and faster... 35... 40...41...43...44...45... Then a flash... A loud boom... Then a crack...and then a clunk... and a splutter... Oh crap! Something had gone terribly wrong... Where was I?! When was I??!!! And what the hell had happened to my time machine?!
