Editor’s Note: this text is from the old version of BTTF tour – we’re going to be revising these articles in the coming days. The photos and screenshots from these articles will all be down below for the time being, instead of thumbnails within the text. Thanks for your patience, and visit us again when everything’s tidied up!
It’s only used for two quick establishing shots (and one deleted scene) in Back to the Future, But it’s one of the most recognizable houses in the film, next to Marty’s and the Gamble House, of course. On the DVD commentatry, we are told that the back of the house in the film was actually shot in the back yard for Lorraine’s house. But Bob Gale & Neil Canton remembered a lot of stuff about these locations incorrectly in the commentary and I do not believe this to be true either. Not only have we visited this location and confirmed that this was indeed the backyard ourselves, but…
HGTV definitively proved us right! Watch the clip above from their “Reel Homes” feature on the George McFly house. (Though why they picked this house over Lorraine’s might be the biggest mystery of all… but as long as they displayed that tree…)
