Which brings me to the subject of a cult movie from the 70's, A Boy and His Dog. It starred a young Don Johnson, and was about a post-apocalyptic world in which he traveled around with a telepathic dog. I remember going to see this movie at the Uptown movie theater in the early '80's.
I can't remember much about the movie, but I always remembered the ending. Don Johnson has the chance to run off with a girl, or save his dying dog. In the end, him and the dog are sitting around a campfire, eating, and the dog says, "Well, I'd say she certainly had marvellous judgement, Albert, if not particularly good taste." I don't have to spell out what happened to the love interest do I? If you're into bizarre, sci-fi, cult classics, you might enjoy it.
