Based on the novella by Harlan Ellison, A Boy and His Dog is set in a post-apocalyptic future where canned goods are used as currency and where entertainment often consists of old porn reels. Vic (Don Johnson) is a violent, illiterate scavenger, principally interested in getting laid. He communicates telepathically with his deceptively cute-looking dog Blood (voiced by Tim McIntire); Vic finds food for Blood, while Blood sniffs out girls for Vic. One of these girls is the sexy Quilla June (Susanne Benton), who, unbeknownst to Vic is a spy for an underground society, headed by a Mr. Craddock (Jason Robards Jr.). This subterranean civilization needs a human "sperm bank" to stay alive, and the oversexed Vic fills the bill. Produced by character actor Alvy Moore (Mr. Kimball of TV's Green Acres), A Boy and His Dog was written and directed by another veteran actor, L.Q. Jones.~Hal Erickson

So happy,! I found this classic drive-inn movie. Remembering, the times I truly enjoyed sitting outside to watch a movie. Brings back good memories. The blue-ray is so sharp and clean with extra features, and audio commentary from the director.
I would recommend this to a friend

Classic cult movie. Very good. Yours truly Mike Ornelas.
This 1974 low-budget and low effects science fiction film has Don Johnson as a young man looking to survive and find a female lover in a war torn deserted wasteland. Aided with a telepathic dog for help, this movie presets the 'Mad Max' films by a few years. Heavy emphasis to the Vietnam war cynicisms, Watergate scandals, and the Cold War fears- the movie is an impressive commentary time capsule, but the slow pace and gritty cheap feel of the movie may bore some.
