Spaceman from Pluto

Wie großartig ist diese Story zu Zurück in die Zukunft denn bitteschön?

Universal Pictures head Sid Sheinberg did not like the title »Back to the Future«, insisting that nobody would see a movie with „future“ in the title. In a memo to Robert Zemeckis, he said that the title should be changed to »Spaceman From Pluto«, tying in with the Marty-as-alien jokes in the film, and also suggested further changes like replacing the »I´m Darth Vader from planet Vulcan« line with „I am a spaceman from Pluto!“ Sheinberg was persuaded to change his mind by a response memo from Steven Spielberg, which thanked him for sending a wonderful „joke memo“, and that everyone got a kick out of it. Sheinberg, too proud to admit he was serious, gave in to letting the film retain its title. (IMDb-Trivia, via)

Ab morgen beantworte ich Mails der Kollegen auch nur noch mit der Rückmeldung, dass mich deren Spaßanfrage überaus belustigt habe.
