Anybody impressed with Robert Towne's scripts for movies like Chinatown and The Last Detail will be interested to catch up with The Last Woman on Earth, his first script for Corman. Ineffably pretentious, the movie sends its three unsympathetic characters skin-diving while the nuclear holocaust breaks; they emerge from the waves to fight out a momentous ménage à trois in a deserted Puerto Rico. Most striking features are the ultra-ripe dialogue and the jaundiced view of pre-nuclear society.
