Back to the Future Part III. 1990. USA. Directed by Robert Zemeckis. 119 min.

Screenplay by Bob Gale, from a story by Robert Zemeckis, Gale. With Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Mary Steenburgen, Lea Thompson. Shot back-to-back with Back to the Future Part II and released six months later, the concluding chapter in the trilogy sends Marty back to the American West of 1885, where Doc Brown needs rescuing from a band of outlaws. More leisurely and less gag-oriented than the first two installments, Part III mainly belongs to Christopher Lloyd’s lovably mad scientist, who is allowed a romantic interlude with a heartbreaking Mary Steenburgen.
