Back to the Future - Alternate line dub

Author

Sorry for all the posts guys, but as I was listing my rare movies collection, I was reminded of the first time I watched the first ‘Back to the Future’ movie on TNT sometime around 1995 and how it used an alternate dub/take of Doc saying 'Marty, you made it!" during the mall parking lot meeting. I remember Doc sounding a bit more ‘enthusiastic’ whereas in the DVD/future airings he sounds much more ‘subdued’ I know it’s just a small clip, but if anyone has a copy of an early TV airing, it might make for a cool novelty comparison video for enthusiasts like myself! 😄

Now that is interesting.

By the way, both audio tracks (original LaserDisc stereo and Blu-Ray 5.1) are included on the DCP version of the film, which is available on MySpleen and which is superior to the Blu-Ray in picture quality.

“You don’t really mean you’ll kill me, do you?” - Juror 8
“Silence, Earthling! My name is Darth Vader. I am an extra-terrestrial from the planet Vulcan!” - Calvin “Marty” Klein

This is so interesting, thanks for pointing that out. The dialogue in the 5.1 sounds so much clearer overall too. I wonder what the source was for the 5.1 remix?

Also, how do people find out stuff like why or how changes were done in a mix? Do the sound mixers give interviews where they reveal these secrets somewhere?

I REMEBER THAT SCENE TOO AND THOUGHT IT HAS DEFINITELY BEEN CHANGED ON NEWER RELEASES. I THOUGHT, I’M NOT GOING NUTS BUT IT’S BAFFLED ME FOR YEARS AND THE ORIGINAL DEFO SOUNDED MORE AUTHENTIC IN THE EARLY RELEASES. HAS ANYONE GOT THESE CLIPS TO SHARE AS THOSE VIDEO LINKS ARE PRIVATE?
