10 Awesome Fan Theories That Improve The Back To The Future Movies
7. George McFly Knows Calvin Klein Was Actually Marty
A lot of questions have been asked by people who have seen the Back To The Future movies regarding why George and Lorraine McFly didn't recognise their son as being the young man who got them together in the first place. A fan theory states that George actually did. It really is too crazy that George wouldn't remember everything "Calvin Klein" said to him. The fire he warned him not to tell his son off about and, in particular, the fact that he was visited by an alien whose name would then go on to be one of the most famous in popular culture (Darth Vader), from a fictional planet that is also one of the most famous in popular culture (Vulcan). You don't forget things like that - especially when you're into sci-fi. The fire actually happening, the release of Star Wars and the ongoing Star Trek saga must surely have triggered memories of the most pivotal event in his life. The theory goes on to suggest that the only reason George didn't say anything to Marty about it is because he needed to let his time-travelling son go back in time in exactly the same way he originally did, in order for George to turn out as a successful man.
