Back To The Future - The Amp at Doc Brown's House
In the beginning of the movie, Marty is at Doc Brown's house. When he plays a chord with the volume all the way up, he is thrown backwards. The cable that was attached to Michael J. Fox is clearly seen. Wasn't there a way to hide that?
Visual Proof! See the examples below and post your pictures too.

The cord you see is the guitar cord to the amp. It is in front of Fox and if it pulled him, it would be behind him, anyway.

In addition to what you are saying, the speaker should have blown when he plugs in the guitar. There's usually a pop (speaker jumps) when you plug in the cord.

I must restate what Larman has already said; the cord that you are seeing is from the amp to the guitar.

I agree with Larman that it´s the cord from the guitar to the amp. Nevertheless I wounder why the cord comes right out of the speaker and not beside it.

Come on, man. It's a movie! Who says physics must still hold true? It's called "suspension of disbelief!"

There are a lot of reasons why he flew backwards the force maybe from the amplifier (however you spell it) also it could have scared him and he flew back and tripped. There are a lot of explanations. Also it is a movie to us we have a volume system on our T.V. it could have been a lot louder in the movie. The force might actually exert someone to fly back some sort of distance.
