Did George Mcfly ever figure out 1955 Marty was his son from the future?

    He must have, right? In 1985 it had been 30 years since George and Lorraine saw 1955 Marty/Calvin Klein. That's a long time and memory is tricky. But i still remember stuff from high school (20 years ago in my case) pretty clearly. Some things stick with u. And an alien named Darth Vader from planet Vulcan showing up in your bedroom threatening to melt your brain if u don't ask your future wife to the dance...yeah I'm gonna say George never forgot that. Which means he never forgot marty, the guy who helped him achieve his goal.

    Future George may or may not have remembered marty saying goldie wilson would end up mayor, which came true. He may have forgotten what marty looked like and didn't realize he looks exactly like his son. But i gotta think all the weird stuff surrounding those few weeks in 1955 that resulted in george hooking up with his wife to be, would stick in georges mind forever. I think he must have figured it out at some point.

    What do u think?






    Watch the last couple mins of this video. Pretty good stuff. Apparently the 1st draft of the script had future george looking at a newspaper article about a near riot at the dance, which showed a pic of marty playing guitar on stage, and george put it all together. So the writers and director may have at least had it in mind that george would figure it out.

    I've seen this movie many times, but didn't put the clues together. It all makes sense now.

    Plus i doubt george ever forgot exactly what the "alien" in his bedroom told him. He said he was Darth Vader from Vulcan.

    Star Trek came out like 10 years later, and george was a sci fi geek so u know he was all about it. He must have flipped out when he heard Planet Vulcan on that show.

    Then in the late 70s he probably really flipped when he saw Star Wars and there was a dude named Darth Vader. Not exactly a common name. He may have realized that his 1955 bedroom alien was giving him pop culture references....from the future. Being a sci fi geek he may have started to suspect time travellers, instead of aliens, at that point.

    U know what will never make sense though? George hiring Biff to work around the house for him. I love that george made Biff his bitch. But that's just stupid. "Hey Lorraine, u remember Biff? That guy that tried to rape u that one time? Yeah he's gonna be working around the house now. Around u and the kids. Lol that biff. What a character!"

    He probably slapped the shit out of Lorraine when the kid ended up looking just like that other dude from high school.

    I'm pretty sure George probably documented the encounter with Marty Vader on his little note pad, which would help preserve the memory of the details in the long run. However, George was also a bit of a dope. I wouldn't doubt it that he might fail to fully put it all together.

    It woulda been so depressing to go back in time and find out my own father is a pathetic loser who needed my help to bag my mother who'd fallen in love with me.

    I would have enjoyed stepping in for the guitar player though.
    How did Marty have charts for the musicians? "Watch me for the changes? What changes? We aren't playing your dumb song, you just stepped up here. "

    I don't know about any of all that, but I do know that Crispin Glover is one weird dude.

    Dude. I always thought the same thing. Why in the hell would they bring a known, violent sexual predator who attempted to rape Lorraine into their home to share in lifetime achievement of George seeing and holding his published novel for the first time?! WTF?!

    Yep.
    I recall that. But my chief memory is the band leader looking at an incredibly distracted Marty chording along competently and making a "not bad given the situation" look

    That scene is actually not all that far fetched. Marty told them it's a "blues riff in B." Any competent rock or blues musician should be able to play without a chart given that information.

    He's referring to 12 Bar Blues which is the framework for nearly all classic blues and rock n roll. The "changes" are the creative liberties he takes within the framework. That universal framework is why there can be so much improvisation in blues, and why skilled musicians can just jump right in on just about any song.

    This whole bloody movie never makes any sense. Because Marty wouldn't remember his now changed childhood because he never lived it, but his brother and sister lived it and they'd have memories of Marty living it with them growing up. They grew up well off with a successful father, would have had a whole different upbringing, memories, vacations etc. Basically Marty would have to act like he woke up with total amnesia and remembers nothing of his whole life. But this new reality Marty still ended up with the same GF? Their relationship would be totally different in this new reality as well.

    So if his father knew his future some was a time traveller the father wouldn't know what his life was before Marty changed it. He would have lived his life normally post-Marty and become successful writer. And if Marty was born and raised in that environment he very likely would have never met Doc Brown, and thus wouldn't have time travelled in the new reality.

    Time travel like this can't happen.

    Sure; I'm a guitar player myself familiar with playing in prepared and fakebook gigs.
    I forgot about the key being indicated. It just seemed so funny, "This gives new meaning to the new guy has a song he wants the band to try"

    I do think it's funny that Doc is the only one to actually remember Marty's presence in the 50's. He read the letter and used Marty's advice in the future. But everyone else just completely forgets.

    Using certain scifi timetravel theories, I would think that since Marty is the one who went back in the time (and then back to the future), he branched out into an alternate timeline, so he himself would remember everything he has witnessed in his singular life - the changes and all. The thing is, once he goes back to the future, everything is so different that he would have either ran into another version of himself, or changed everything to where his own birth would have either happened at another time, or never at all.

    It is weird how everything is essentially the same, except for his parent's attitudes/lifestyles. Same house, same siblings, same girlfriend, same Biff/Doc.

    I remember reading how Crispin Glover refused to do the sequels because he didn't like the morals at the end of the first one. Basically, the only thing to really change was that George McFly became successful and rich, and that made everything better. So he (being a commie and all) didn't like how being rich = happy. Then they used prosthetics in the sequel and he sued them :p
