Actress Elisabeth Shue can barely remember making hit movie sequels BACK TO THE FUTURE PART II and PART III - because they were shot back-to-back just six months after her brother's tragic death.

The 41-year-old joined her brothers on holiday in France to celebrate her breakthrough part in 1988's COCKTAIL, but her 27-year-old sibling died in front of her after impaling himself on a tree branch.

And Shue says she has few memories of her part as JENNIFER PARKER/McFly in the popular 1980s sci-fi comedies, because she was still mourning his death.

She says. "The films were a blur. I was still in shock. His death stripped away the dishonesty in my life."
