I've been a devotee of post-apocalyptic films for several years but until perusing streaming options on Amazon today I had never heard of this 1959 film starring Harry Belafonte and Mel Ferrer. It's set in New York City and was filmed in Manhattan. Some impressive scenes and cinematography. And some implausibilities but it is 1950s Hollywood...

Highly recommend if you, too, are a fan of post-apocalyptic genre. That it is black-and-white and circa-1950s is for me a bonus.

Amazon is streaming a remastered version and it is excellent quality.

Mel Ferrer? I'd love to see a post-apocalyptic film with Mel Brooks!

The only post apocalyptic comedy I know of is Trigun.

There's 'The Bed Sitting Room' and of course there's 'causing the apocalypse' films:

'Dr Strangelove'

'Whoops Apocalypse' (the tv series is a lot better than the film. https://youtu.be/aEJ9Is5sZUw

I'll be amazed if there aren't more.

The Horn & Hardart Automat shown 20 - 30 minutes into the movie (The World, The Flesh and the devil) was located at 236 5th Avenue, New York, NY.

Just watched Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse. TOTALLY BLASTED! The absolute masterpiece! laugh

The 1959 one looked to me more like on the racial segregation mentality in the US subject.

Don't forget the classic post nuclear apocalypse film, " On The Beach".

Any film with Ava Gardner is unforgettable....That aside, it is indeed a very good flick.

There's that towering achievment of film culture that no serious student of the cinematic art should ignore:

Strippers versus Zombies.
