Bob Gale: Writer of Screenplays and Comic Books

In the summer of 1980, Bob Gale was looking through his father's high school year book and discovered his father was senior class president. He wondered about his fathers personality at that age, what other students thought of him, and what it would be like to be in school with his parents.

He teamed up with Robert Zemeckis, and began writing the movie Back to the Future

Their script was rejected 40 times before it was accepted.

Bob and Robert also wrote the two sequels; Bob produced all three.

In 1985, both were nominated for an Academy Award.

Bob has written a host of additional movies, and also written stories for comic books, including Marvel and DC Comics, and was one of the writers on The Amazing Spider-Man.

He resides in Los Angeles.
