Video Breaks Down a Stunt Gone Wrong in BACK TO THE FUTURE Part III — GeekTyrant

Michael J. Fox has had a great career full of hits in both TV and film, but his most well-known role has got to be that of Marty McFly in the Back to the Future film trilogy. He looks back on the films fondly, acknowledging his solid performance, but it turns out the films didn’t come without major risks.

A video was released by WatchMojo (via CheatSheet) which breaks down some of the actor injuries you can see happen in movies. In it, they talk about a scene in Back to the Future Part III in which Fox’s Marty McFly travels back in time to 1885 to save Doc Brown from certain death. But as soon as he arrives, he encounters Buford “Mad Dog” Tannen, aka Biff from the previous films, played by Tom Wilson.

During shooting, Fox volunteered to do one of the close-up scenes of his near hanging while the stunt performers did the wide shots. During one of these close-up takes, Fox was accidentally hanged long enough for him to lose consciousness. Fortunately, he was not seriously injured by the stunt gone wrong, but you can still see the actor’s very real struggle in the scene when watching the film.

Check out the scene below:
