      From 1974, Where Have All the People Gone is a movie I’ve remembered well from its original airing on television. Back in the day, this was actually one of those movies that showed up late night all the time. Peter Graves stars as Steven Anders, the father of David and Deborah. The three are in the mountains when an unusual event occurs, knocking out phone lines, radio waves, and all kinds

      of things, while also showing large amounts of radioactivity.

      Quickly, the Anders discover that there are no people; at least, they go a long time without seeing another soul. As they work on getting home to Malibu, California, they discover a woman in shock, played by Verna Bloom, and an orphaned boy named Michael (Michael-James Wixted).

      It’s the journey this family takes that makes the show worthwhile. What would you do if in the ...

      • blink of an eye, everyone was gone? That’s the question.

        The acting is pretty good. Along with Graves, George O’Hanlon Jr. and Kathleen Quinlan star. They play David and Deborah. Both added drama and depth to the story.

        For me, the worst thing is just the lack of time to mourn at the end. They’ve found the answers to their questions and while there is grieving, it just shifts too fast.

        They needed just a tad more. There’s also that feeling of a new ‘ready made’ family that seems a bit too much.

        That said, this is a movie I’ve never forgotten. I’ve looked for it many times before finally finding it again this week. It’s memorable. It raises questions that don’t necessarily have easy answers. Except for a couple of animal scenes that aren’t my style, I enjoy this movie a lot.
