I Heart Sequels Hearts BTTF II and The Biff Tannen Museum

Like almost any red-blooded little boy of the 80s I loved the Back to the Future movies, even the ridiculous third film in the series. But there is a special spot in my heart reserved for Back to the Future II. It's just a twacked-out movie, going back and forth, really exploring the possibilites and repercussions of the Delorean, both good and bad. The best part of the movie has to be the alternative universe of Hill Valley 1985, where Biff Tannen is lord and master to all.

That video was recently discovered, having belonged to a BTTF fan with connections to the film's production. BTTF. com got their hands on it for an exclusive. Check it out:

From BTTF.com:
BTTF.com has recently uncovered a copy of the complete video monitor footage from the 'Biff Tannen Museum' scene in Back to the Future™ Part II which Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) watches at the museum's entrance while he's looking for answers about his father's demise.

This never-before-seen clip is an extension of the material we briefly see on film, featuring some elaborate glimpses into Biff Tannen's (Tom Wilson) ill-gained rise to fame and power in Hill Valley.

The 3½ minute segment was digitized from an old VHS tape which had been saved by a Back to the Future fan with family connections to the film production at the time the sequels were shot in 1989-1990. To date, the following clip is not available on any other commercial collection, including the recently released 25th Anniversary Trilogy Blu-ray Disc and DVD boxed sets.

While it'd be nice to see this thing in fully-realized form, any fan of the film can plug in the proper sound, music cues, etc., and fill in the rest from there. It might not be the lost Eric Stoltz footage in tis enitrety, but it's still a sweet litte gift to all the fans out there and it ain't on the brand new boxset.
