    Back to the Future

    1. The Atomic Kid.

    According to Back to the Future co-writer and producer Bob Gale, in the first two drafts of the screenplay, "...the whole clocktower sequence at the end wasn't there: It was going to be the radiation from an explosion at a nuclear testing site that would power the time machine back to 1985." The Atomic Kid is a 1954 movie about a man who is exposed to nuclear radiation on an atomic bomb test site.
