No Blade of Grass is a 1970 British-American apocalyptic science fiction film directed by Cornel Wilde and starring Nigel Davenport, Jean Wallace and John Hamill.[1] It is an adaptation of the novel The Death of Grass by John Christopher and follows the survivors of a plague that has hit London in the not too distant future. When London is overwhelmed by food riots caused by a global famine, a man tries to lead his family to safety in Scotland.



Plans to make the film had been announced in 1958.[2]
