Abstract This 1975 science-fiction thriller, based on Harlan Ellison's classic short story, failed commercially but has become a cult classic. It tells the story of a young man in a post-apocalyptic landscape who survives with the help of a telepathic dog. The film's iconic final line, a shocking and memorable pun, was an addition to the screenplay that Ellison hated. The film won the 1976 Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation. Starring Don Johnson as Vic. Also starring Susanne Benton, Ron Feinberg, and Jason Robards. Directed by L. Q. Jones.
