Eric Stoltz Back to the Future footage

Postby Udvarnoky » Tue Oct 12, 2010 6:23 pm

After 25 years of clamoring, the world gets a first glimpse at the discarded performance of Stoltz as Marty McFly. Never thought I'd see the day.

All of the footage I've seen contains no dialouge which is good for Stoltz, if of course the reasons that were given were true on his firing. I also have to think that they paid Stoltz allot of money because either way, it's an odd career move. (*Career move meaning they had to have had to ask Stoltz permission to release the footage)

Why? (Granted, that would have been the courteous thing to do, but I don't see why they had to.)

Bob Gale is the only reason the footage has never been released and why so little was finally released. He felt bad about Stoltz being fired and didn't want him to suffer any shame from any of his cut footage being seen, as it would instantly be compared against Michael J. Fox's performance.

Also, from what I've heard from those who have already seen the Blu-Rays, that 1:15 segment on Stoltz is all the footage of him you get to see.
