A Boy and His Dog is a 1975 American science fiction post-apocalyptic black comedy film set in the then futuristic year of 2024. The movie has achieved cult status over the years since it's release. The screenplay is based on a 1969 novella ,and a couple short stories, written by Harlan Ellison in the late sixties. The movie stars a young Don Johnson as an 18 year old amoral teenager called Vic and his telepathic dog; Blood (voiced by Tim McIntire). The duo roams a world devastated by a massive nuclear war that took place in 2007. The movie was written, produced and directed by actor L.Q. Jones. Both the movie and the stories (in addition to Ellison's 1968 Hugo winning short story "I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream") are believed by some movie scholars to have been a source of inspiration for director James Cameron when he wrote The Terminator.
