Came here after news about Tina Turner (RIP), the film proved a precursor to Mad Max however has an absurd plot, badly marketed, with Don Johnson’s boyish charm attracting all sorts of audiences, wildly attacked by many back in the day, here he rapes a virgin (Susanne Benton/Catch-22) who lures him into an agrarian community run by a ruthless committee (Robards et al) who want him “to impregnate 35 virgins because they have trouble breeding”; they plan to kill him afterwards. Talk about …wild fantasy. All the fun is the conversation between him and the dog, which is not to everyone’s taste.

Commentary is with Director LQ Jones, cameraman John Arthur Morrill and critic Charles Champlin.
Unknowns? Try doing a search on Jason Robards, one of cinema’s most highly respected actors. L.Q. Jones’ ‘A Boy And His Dog’ is considered one of the most popular cult films of all time, influencing such films as ‘Road Warrior’, etc. Jones himself is a cult acting legend. It’s definitely Don Johnson’s best moment in the spotlight. Karanaz skipped Psychotronic 101.
Featuring Jason Robards, and introducing Don (soon to be of MIAMI VICE) Johnson and his dog in a very “tasteful” performance.
A classic. My favorite kind of sci-fi, intelligent and full of symbolism. Also of note, this movie’s look was a big influence on the Mad Max films, and I believe Don Johnson’s first staring roll.
Johnson was in Zachariah in 1971 with John Rubinstein…a very cool and very obscure film, that needs a copy here!
One of the more disturbing entries in the post-apocalyptic film genre. Glad it was made in the 1970s because it definitely wouldn’t be made the same way today (like A CLOCKWORK ORANGE wouldn’t).
This movie is one of silly and stupid and worst Sci-Fi movies ever. All those who participated (actors, actresses, director …etc) to produce it are unknown.
I haven’t seen this movie yet, and I’ll watch it only to see how they adapted Harlan Ellison’s famous story. I might conclude it is as bad as you say, though it seems to be rated much higher than many other movies here. But “all those who participated are unknown”?! Come on, Karanaz! Are you seriously claiming that, for example, the main actor, a certain Don Johnson, is unknown? Or are you just trolling us?
OR Jason Robards, too? I HOPE dude’s only being a snarky troll and not someone who just doesn’t know. I mean, c’mon–Robards was an Oscar Winning actor before this film, and this film was also Johnson’s debut.
Don’t forget two time Oscar winner Jason Robards. He’s obviously unknown. But dead. Unfortunately.
We wouldn’t have Fallout or Mad Max 2, as well as most Post-Apocalyptic media; were this film never made.
It can be bad and still be very enjoyable… and it can be ‘great’ and be absolutely horrible to you.
I enjoyed watching this move… but I wouldn’t think of telling you what you would think good or bad… or even if you would enjoy it… like most non-quantitative things (beauty is in the eye of the beholder).
Don Johnson and Jason Robards are unknows…LOL!
Thank You Much RL, Very Much Appreciated!!!!
I Agree With John and Thanks So MUCH for Filling this Request RL!!!!
Simply put, one of the best sci-fi movies of all time.
