A Boy and His Dog (1975) - Repost

This is a re-re-post with an updated, working video.  

This post-apocalyptic film oddity was based on a novella by Harlan Ellison. Directed and co-scripted by actor L.Q. Jones it follows Don Johnson's character Vic and his telepathically linked dog named Blood as they roam the ruins of America following World War IV.  As they search for food and other necessities, they also have to contend with other more dastardly and violent scavengers. After they stumble into an underground community of survivors, they assume things will become easier but soon discover otherwise. By no means perfect, this film offers an early and unique glimpse of the 
post-nuclear war genre.
