* ExecutiveMeddling: Attempted, but thwarted by the power of [[Creator/StevenSpielberg Spielberg]]. Universal head Sid Sheinberg didn't like the title ''Back To The Future'' and sent Spielberg a memo suggesting that it be changed to ''Spaceman From Pluto'', in reference to the two scenes in which Marty is mistaken for an alien while in his hazmat suit, and asked that those two scenes be re-written to accommodate the title. Spielberg sent Sheinberg a letter back thanking him for "the wonderful joke," and Sheinberg was too ashamed to admit he was serious. It should be noted this was Steven's way to lighten the rejection, as Sheinberg was well-liked and for the most part didn't meddle negatively in the process, so they didn't want to turn it into an inflammatory situation.

* RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActor: The actor of Biff Tannen, Thomas F. Wilson, is a painter and a comedian, very approachable to fans and likes to joke about the questions he's getting regarding his role as Biff. He's also HappilyMarried with four children. WordOfGod also vouch for this in various commentaries and Q&As.

WordOfGod also vouch for this in various commentaries and Q&As. Not only is he not a bully in real life, he drew on his real life experiences of BEING bullied in high school to play Biff. And he really doesn't like it when fans ask him to call someone a butthead.

* HandWave: Bob Gale has invoked this with regards to canonicity, saying that the side stories, "Continuum Conundrum," and ''VideoGame/BackToTheFutureTheGame'' are all simultaneously canonical and non-canonical to the franchise, because alternate timelines are a possibility with time travel. (Presumably, this extends to Ride/BackToTheFutureTheRide and [[WesternAnimation/BackToTheFuture the animated series]] as well.)

* EnforcedMethodActing: Two examples that didn't make the film because of Eric Stoltz. When they filmed the cafeteria scene, Stoltz roughed up Thomas F. Wilson for real and Wilson almost broke his collarbone. The normally nice guy Wilson planned to get revenge during the car park scene at the dance by actually punching Stoltz but Stoltz was fired by then so he never got the chance.



** The situation with Stoltz also affected the casting decisions of two other characters:
*** Melora Hardin (who would later play Jan on ''Series/TheOfficeUS'') was originally cast as Jennifer to play opposite Eric Stoltz's Marty. However, Melora never filmed any scenes, and was fired after Marty was recast because she was a lot taller than Michael J. Fox, which actually alienated many of the ''female'' crew members, while the male crew members had no problem with it, whatsoever.
*** J.J. Cohen was considered for Biff, but he was cast as Skinhead instead due to the fact he wouldn't have looked physically imposing next to Stoltz. Bob Gale has said that had Michael J. Fox, who Cohen is taller than, been cast from the beginning, Cohen probably would've won the role.

* AscendedFanon: George's reluctance at letting Creator/RobertZemeckis adapt ''A Match Made in Space'' into a movie references an article in USA Today's RealLife reproduction of the 2015 newspaper cover prop. According to [[http://www.slashfilm.com/usa-today-back-to-the-future-newspaper/#more-320613 this page]], the phony article was written by Gannett VP Matt Urbanos to replace the junk filler used by the original newspaper prop.
