How the West Was Fun: Celebs Head for the Past Roundup to Launch Back to the Future Iii
Time tripper Michael J. Fox wasn't able to go West for the non-necktie party—he's in New York City filming The Hard Way with James Woods—but such Future folks as Steenburgen (who plays a school-marm), director Robert Zemeckis and the trilogy's eternal bully, Thomas F. Wilson, moseyed on over to the four-acre Western set on Universal Studio's back lot where the party was held.
The event, which was a fund-raiser for L.A.'s Westside Children's Center, a foster-child agency, may have been rip-roaring fun, but, other than Steenburgen, no one was gunning to follow Fox into the Old West. Martin Short said he'd prefer the early 1960s ("I liked it then. I was swinging"). Maria Shriver wasn't sure what era she'd prefer: "I can't think of anything. I guess I'm learning to live in the present." And Sally Field, displaying the plucky good sense that helped win her two Oscars, wouldn't give time travel the time of day.
