TIL: In Back to the Future, the theatre in the background behind the clock tower shows “Orgy American Style” being shown. This is an actual porno from 1973. The male star from that porno played Red the Bum in the film, calling Marty a crazy drunk driver when returns to the present.

Just when I was certain I knew everything about Back to the Future

It should be noted that George Buck, the actor who played Red the Bum, was a well known character actor who was in a lot of mainstream films. He was not a porn actor. He just happened to have a part in that Porn film. Porn films in the 70s and 80s had more plot and narrative to them and commonly casted people in non-xxx roles.

I always thought it was funny that Hill Valley had a porn theater. Pre-Biff.
