Factual error: Though extremely modest on today's standards, the dress worn by Clara to the hoedown shows far too much cleavage for the time. No schoolteacher would ever wear a dress like that in the 1880s.
Though Doc asked Marty not to come back for him, Marty does go back anyway, because he and the 1955-Doc find out that Emmet Brown was killed shortly after the writing of the letter (by Mad Dog Tannen, the great-grandfather of Biff).
Right after the time-jump, the DeLorean is attacked by Indians who put an arrow to the gas tank, the fuel goes away.
Doc finds a way to solve that: they must kidnap a train and accelerate with that above 88 mphs.
Doc saves the new teacher of the town, Clara Clayton, who was supposed to die, and falls in love with her.
Trivia: The band playing at the Hill Valley festival is rock band ZZ Top (two guys with long white beards playing guitar, and a drummer), who wrote songs for the film.
Question: When the 1985 Doc is suddenly transported back to 1885 at the end of BTTF 2 and Marty discovers that he has been murdered, because there is a Doc in 1955 that has already been born after the 1985 Doc has died in the West, why did he go to the trouble of going all the way back to 1885 when Doc was still alive? Is there any actual legitimate time travel reason for this, or did he just do it out of instinct to help his close friend?
