I got lucky with the description of the Drayfuss character's personality. With the earlier discussions of an Italian family, Miss Hunter never crossed my mind. -- I'll post one clue, and then Life calls me away from the screen for a few hours.

 

Post-Apocalypse. Society balkanized. Mutations are coming about.

Negative re *Solyent Green.*

 

This is the _only_ movie directed by a performer who had a destinguished career as a character actor. Has something of a cult status. Fans threw a Trekkie-type shindig when the DVD came out.

One gang has a defendable compound with a power source and the ability to show movies. The admission: food -- preferably canned goods from before the Event. The director gives himself a shot in a porn feature that is on the program.

 

It is on the TCM list. not currently scheduled. Has a short but informative "overview".

 

The Event mentioned above was WWIV.

In canine mutation, a dog still has a keen sense of smell. Downside -- it has lost the ability to forage, to hunt, to obtain food for itself. Upside -- it has gained the ability to communicate with humans telepathically. Dog and man hook up; they can support and help each other.

 

I ran across a blurb which claims that this title is always showing up when someone makes a

"10 Best Sci-Fi Movies" list.

 

The canine star of this movie had seen previous exposure with The Brady Bunch.

 

Did I mention? 1975.

"A Boy and His Dog" - 1975

 

I wonder if there are other posters out there like me. I knew this answer a few clues ago but neglected to respond because I don't have access (or time) often enough to adequately pose a question of my own. I'll try one after getting confirmation that I'm correct. I apologize in advance if my responses are slow.

 

Thanks,

UC

As the one Amish acquaintance of my life would have said: It wonders me. It wonders me that the

readership of these Boards don't recognize a description of 1975's *A Boy And His Dog*. It had

Don Johnson in the lead, Jason Robards in support. Based on a novella by SF superstar Harlan

Ellison. Director L.Q. Jones turned in a long career of solid support performances that approached

brilliance when he had the catalyst of Strother Martin as a partner and Sam Peckinpah as a director.

 

And it was not just Trivia buffs. I did a scroll-through of the "Science Fiction" and "Cult Movies"

Forums, and found no mention of it. (With the 19 pages in the SF Forum, I didn't take time to go on to every "name this movie" thread.) Anyway, its there. Its on the TCM list with brief-but-adequate description. Anyone curious enough to look it up may want to skip the next sentence;

its a spoiler. He kills the girl and feeds her to the dog, thus saving the life of his only dependable friend.

UC;

Whew! I was composing my last answer when you logged on with the above comment. Suggestion: Knowing what you do, you may consider going on the TCM list pages and contributing a synopsis. At any rate, I now feel less like an oddball. Thanks.
