Tannen Pictures

Biff Tannen and Bernie Kessoff at Tannen Pictures.

Tannen Pictures was a movie studio, in Los Angeles, California in 1960 of the alternate timeline where an elderly Biff Tannen used the DeLorean time machine and the Grays Sports Almanac to make his younger self a millionaire.


A Hollywood producer named Bernie Kessoff convinced Biff to start a movie studio, having noticed Biff's admiration of celebrities. Bernie managed the studio while Biff partied with celebrities. However, Kessoff wasted millions of dollars on himself, and didn't spend much on the film that he promised Biff that Tannen Pictures would produce. When Biff finally started being concerned about the studio's finances, Bernie put in a last ditch effort to get the film made.

That film, Dreams of a Madman, starred Rock Hudson, Judy Garland, Harpo Marx, and Boris Karloff. It premiered on November 6, 1960 to scathing reviews. When Biff discovered that Tannen Pictures was being repossessed, Biff sent Bernie to bet on a horse race. Unbeknownst to Bernie, the horse track was controlled by the crime boss Deke Dirkin, who had Bernie killed when he mentioned that Biff had sent him.

After urinating on Bernie Kessoff's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Biff left Hollywood and went back to his hometown of Hill Valley.
