The World, the Flesh, and the Devil

A miner trapped in a cave-in resurfaces, and upon discovering mankind has been wiped out in a nuclear holocaust, sets out to find other survivors.

“Enthralling…Unlike routine fantasies of this sort, it does not rest on imaginative images of destruction, although shots of a wind-blown empty city are awesome enough, but keeps to an essentially psychological exploration of the impact of loneliness, luxury for the asking, and the problem of survival.” – The N.Y. Herald Tribune

This film is part of the His Song: A Harry Belafonte Retrospective series.
