Fade In is a 1968 American film starring Burt Reynolds, who said, "It should have been called Fade Out."[2]


Filming started in July 1967[3] and was shot at the same time as the Western Blue on the same location in Moab, Utah, using some footage from that movie although it had a separate story, cast and crew.[4] Judd Bernard, who produced both, said "Both pictures are either going to be great or be disaster areas. There will be no middle ground with either one."[1] Parts of the film were shot at Professor Valley, Castle Valley, Hittle Bottom, Moab, Dead Horse Point, and Arches in Utah.[5]

It was the first Hollywood made film to show someone taking a contraception pill.[6]

It was the first film to be released using the pseudonym Alan Smithee, which had been created for Death of a Gunfighter but which wasn't released until the following year.


"It was screened for Bob Evans at Paramount and I think he locked it up in chains", said Reynolds years later. "It's never been heard from since."[7]

"It's the best thing I've ever done", Reynolds added. "An American version of A Man and a Woman."[8]
