To prepare for his role, Michael Douglas had to get fit. First, Douglas started running twenty minutes a day building it up to 50-60 miles a day. Douglas gave up smoking two packets of cigarettes a day and lost 12 lbs in weight. He would start running at 6.30 am each day in the Beverly Hills canyons. See more »
I saw again Running last week-end and let me tell you this is one of the best from Micheal Douglas. Even this movie was made early in his carreer Micheal role as a marathon runner is just outstanding. But the best things about that movie is the music score by a unknown musician named Andre Gagnon. Early is the movie the music got to me and make me watching until the end. Watch yourself Mr. Williams or Mr. Horner because Andre Gagnon might take some work away from you. I know this movie is not available in video but watch your TV guide and let your VCR "running" to tape this movie because you will watch again and again. Bravo Micheal Douglas and Bravo Andre Gagnon you just made a Masterpiece.
