Adam at 6 AM has its moments
21 May 2011 | by mis9See all my reviews

Saw Adam at 6AM decades ago. I believe it was Michael Douglas's first movie and he was still in college when asked to make the movie. The movie gets its name, when Adam starts his trip east in the red sports car and the camera focus on the clock 6 AM. The movie was very low budget. Several scenes in Mo at the home were never cropped and you can see the the lighting and other equipment. They never went back to re shoot. Michael's voice hadn't developed, but you can see his grace and charm even at this young age.

The movie starts to drag about 3/4 through and doesn't pick up.Obvious when the movie was casted, producers wanted the Douglas name even if only the son of Kirk was available. Movie appears to be related to the the graduate.I'm still trying to remember the res sports car, was it and Austin Healey? Reminds me of my TRS 3 in college. I knew I had something in common with Michael Douglas.
