Biography

Screenwriter Bob Gale is best known for his work on the "Back to the Future" trilogy. Born in Missouri, Gale as a child made films with his brother and later attended the USC School of Cinema. While there he met Robert Zemeckis, with whom he would collaborate numerous times, and wrote the sci-fi-themed student films "The Annihilator Attacks" and "The Discovery". In 1973 Gale collaborated with classmate Zemeckis for the first time, on the comedy short "A Field of Honor". After graduating, the two would team up on a slew of projects, sharing writing credit on the Steven Spielberg bomb "1941" and the Beatlemania comedy "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" (Zemeckis's feature directing debut). In 1985 they released their landmark time-travel yarn "Back to the Future", which spawned two sequels, both of which were co-written by Gale. The trilogy of films made over 500 million dollars worldwide, and easily were Gale's most successful works. In 2002, he debuted as a feature-film director with the road movie "Interstate 60", which included appearances from "Back to the Future" cohorts Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd.
