Back to the Future (1985)
Personal pics from the set of Back of the Future taken while I was a security guard at Universal Studios.

I heard Steven Spielberg snuck onto the lot in a security uniform when he was young, so I took it to the next level and got a job there. I wanted the inside track and got it, even later meeting Spielberg on the Goonies dubbing stage, but that's another story.

They built the 1955 set first, then when I came back just two weeks later, they had rebuilt the same set for 1985, paving over the Courthouse Square park and completely remodeling all the storefronts and signage. Amazing! And they did this TWICE, since they originally shot part of the movie with Eric Stoltz, who was later replaced by Fox.

Oh, and one day Fox skateboarded over to me and actually gave me the time of day, later learning that he was only getting 2-3 hours of sleep a night. Definitely a cool guy that seemed like someone you'd want to hang out with.

Fast forward, watching the new Blu-Ray boxed set and my 3 year-old is a HUGE fan. He asks to watch it every day. To be continued ... indeed!
