    I just saw this page at Amazon, with a street date of July 16th--

    https://www.amazon.com/Adam-at-M-Michael-Douglas/dp/B07RS9274V/ref=sr_1_1?crid=1RPGWZTR0XQGH&keywords=adam+at+6+am+dvd&qid=1562521724&s=gateway&sprefix=adam+at%2Caps%2C204&sr=8-1

    Appears to be a DVD-only release, from Paramount. No indication, so far, that this will be a Manufacture-On-Demand disc. Also no widescreen info, though I assume it would be 1.85:1 anamorphic.

    This got a VHS release, but no laserdisc release in the US, that I recall. I remember Paramount announcing a DVD release, many years ago, when they were putting a lot of catalog product out, but that got cancelled, for whatever reason. Strange to see this pop up now, seemingly at random, but I'm happy it is.

    I saw Adam at 6 A.M. once or twice, on local TV, way back in the 1980s, and remember it being pretty good, and then it subsequently fell off the map. Between this and the Shout/Scream Factory announcement of Let's Scare Jessica to Death, I wonder what bodes for more from the Paramount vault... more, or are these just a couple of flukes?

    I remember Adam at 6 AM as being quite a good film. Good cast and effective story, and a memorable ending. Lee Purcell was a real eyeful back then. But that price, $29.98, for a DVD, MOD or otherwise, is hard to take. I'd buy at a substantial discount.

    Thanks Peter, for the notice. Like yourself, I wonder what this selection by Paramount might portend, if anything.

    Weird. Paramount didn't produce or distribute this film initially.
