"Back to the Future" Almost Had Worst Movie Title Ever

Marty (Michael J. Fox) as the "spaceman" in "Back to the Future"
Back to the Future is a great title. Let's not even dispute that. It's provocative and mind-twistingly literal. It's also tells you it's a time travel movie, and kind of hints at what the story will be about. But not everyone liked it, particularly the head of Universal Studios, Sid Scheinberg. At one point, he proposed a different and thoroughly horrible title for different and thoroughly horrible reasons. Especially in hindsight, it's just mind-boggling how bad it is. Network Notes revealed the ridiculous memo:
Studio notes to Spielberg over Back to the Future

Letters of Note posted the hilarious response from Steven Spielberg.
