Ralph Burton is a miner who is trapped for several days as a result of a cave-in. When he finally manages to dig himself out, he realizes that all of mankind seems to have been destroyed in a nuclear holocaust. He travels to New York City only to find it deserted. Making a life for himself there, he is flabbergasted to eventually find Sarah Crandall, who also managed to survive. Together, they form a close friendship until the arrival of Benson Thacker who has managed to pilot his small boat into the city's harbor. At this point the tensions rise between the three, particularly between Thacker, who is white and Burton, who is black.
Robert Downey Jr. Sign in. See the list. The world is destroyed in a nuclear holocaust. Only five Americans survive, including a pregnant woman, a neo-Nazi, a black man and a bank clerk. Dave Burke hires two very different debt-burdened men for a bank robbery.
Dwarfed by the ubiquitous 20th century urban architecture of the Big Apple — and with no other people around — Ralph truly seems vulnerable; a man trapped in a very large cage. Around him are all the sights of the old world; all the shapes and forms, but nothing else. In short order, the three human survivors of The World, The Flesh and The Devil must make a choice about what kind of new world they hope to dwell in. Even if she prefers Ralph to Ben. Rather, they must each confront their own belief systems and relationships. Do you know what it means to be sick in your heart from loneliness? The mannequin crashes to the street below and is destroyed.
Ralph Burton Harry Belafonte , a light-skinned and generally stereotype-defying black man who works as a coal miner somewhere in the Midwest, is performing some kind of preliminary structural examination of an old tunnel which his bosses are presumably thinking of reopening when a cave-in traps him in the disused section of the mine. One assumes it was all the leaking water that led the company to close down this tunnel in the first place. Burton lucks out at least a little, though, in that he finds an abandoned operations center with a partially functional telephone. The receiver is no good, but the transmitter works, allowing him to inform the people upstairs of his plight; they in turn can pass simple messages to Burton by banging on the water pipes in code. A short while after Burton makes contact, he begins hearing the sounds of digging from the far end of the cave-in, but five days later, at which point it sounds as though the rescue excavation is nearly complete, those sounds suddenly and mysteriously stop. In a panic over his seeming abandonment, Burton takes up a pickaxe and begins digging himself, hoping that his rescuers really did get as close as they sounded before inexplicably aborting the mission.
