Young, good-looking-and dissatisfied-California college professor Adam Gaines (Michael Douglas) felt compelled to personally pay his respects when a distant relative passed away in rural Missouri. Opting to experiment with a different lifestyle, he sticks around for the summer as a day laborer... and comes to find this supposedly simpler existence anything but. Incisive story redolent of late-'60s restlessness co-stars Lee Purcell, Joe Don Baker, Louise Latham, Grayson Hall. 100 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English.
