By the time he reaches the eerie empty streets of New York City these scenes were filmed at daybreak, just before the Friday "rush hour". Belafonte has pieced together the situation: a mysterious radioactive cloud has killed off everyone else on Earth. After an hour or so of singing to himself and conversing with department store mannequins, Belafonte discovers that another human being, beautiful Inger Stevens, has survived the cataclysm. Tentatively overcoming inbred racial considerations, Belafonte and Stevens make the best of their situation he even throws her a birthday party.

    Best Post-Apocalyptic Film of All Time

    It is also one of the most finely crafted films of any genre, and it seems incredible that it has taken so long for it to be released. It is intelligent without being pedantic, multi-layered without being heavy-handed or convoluted. I hesitate to give examples, as I do not want to spoil any moment of the film for first time viewers. If nothing else, a look at the cast list should be enticement enough. Belafonte, Stevens, and Ferrer could lift any work above it's failings, and, in this case, everything about this film matches the talent of the phenomenal cast. I have waited years for this to be released, and now everyone on my gift list can expect to receive this in 2011!
