Back to the Future Part III is a 1990 comedic action-adventure film and third of the Back to the Future trilogy directed by Robert Zemeckis and written by Zemeckis and Bob Gale. It stars Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, Thomas F. Wilson, and Mary Steenburgen.

Part II and Part III were originally one long film, but were broken into parts and released six months apart. Although it was the lowest-grossing film of the trilogy, Part III grossed over $244.5 million worldwide, making it the sixth-highest grossing film of the year.


In this movie, Marty goes to the 1800s during the "Wild West" to rescue Doc from getting shot by Biff Tannen's great-grandfather, Buford "Mad Dog" Tannen. While stuck in the past, Doc saves Clara Clayton and they fall in love. Doc and Marty struggle to find a way back to their present.

The Time Travelers Edit

At the end of the movie, Doc marries Clara Clayton (played by Mary Steenburgen) and they appear with a modified locomotive equipped with a "flux capacitor," traveling with their children Jules and Verne.

Method of Travel Edit



Using a flux capacitor powered by plutonium, Doc Brown's modified DeLorean DMC-12 can through time once it reaches 88 mph. However, refined gasoline isn't available in 1885 and the characters use a train to reach the speed they need. Later, Doc turns the train into a time machine (one that can fly) and travel with his new wife Clara and sons, Jules and Verne.
