A Young Don Johnson Has A Talking Dog And A “Girlfriend” Problem! The Cult Gem “A Boy And His Dog!”

Meet Blood – A Very Smart Dog!

Sometimes a film is discovered long after it’s released – and cinephiles realize they have missed out on a great gem – like the story of “Blood” and his “Master!”

Yes, Blood’s Master is a very young Don Johnson – but the dialogue quickly proves that we know who is REALLY running the show:

Blood: You know, Albert, sometimes you can be such a putz…

Albert: A putz? What’s a putz? It’s somethin’ bad, isn’t it? You better take that back or I’m gonna kick your fuzzy butt!

Blood: [sighs] Yep, definitely a putz.

Great dialogue made better by the fact that Blood is a talking dog!


“A Boy And His Dog!”

This is a terrific film, released in 1975: the story of two friends who wander a post-apocalyptic world where every day is a fight to survive…

Johnson’s “Girlfriend” Problem!

Things take a surreal turn with the duo stumble into an underground society where the daughter of one of the leaders of the community seduces and lures him below the surface. You see, these survivors have become unable to reproduce because of being underground so long.

So they need Don to solve their problem!

The screenplay was started by Harlan Ellison, who wrote the novella on which it is based. Ellison encountered writer’s block, and so producer Alvy Moore and legendary cult Actor L.Q. Jones took over and wrote the script – and Ellison loved it!
