Michael J. Fox's First Movie

Michael J. Fox's first film was 1980's Midnight Madness, released by Walt Disney Pictures. Michael J. Fox's youthful look and age proved to be an asset, since Disney needed someone who looked younger yet was actually old enough to work late.

Despite its comparatively wholesome look at college aged students, a few people at Disney thought the film was too racy to trumpet as an official Disney release. In fact, the Disney name was never fully attached to the film until its DVD release in 2004. While a special edition release of the film has been rumored due to it being Michael J. Fox's first film, no such release has officially been announced.
