The Noah is a 1975 post-apocalyptic fiction film written and directed by Daniel Bourla, starring Robert Strauss in his final film performance.

Noah (Strauss) is the sole survivor on our planet after a nuclear holocaust. To cope with his loneliness, he creates an imaginary companion, then a companion for his companion (played by off-screen voice performances by Geoffrey Holder and Sally Kirkland) and finally an entire civilization - a world of illusion in which there is no reality but Noah, and no rules but those of the extinct world of his memory.[1]

The film was shot in Puerto Rico in 1968, but was not screened until 1975 and it was never released theatrically. The Noah remained unseen until 1997, when it was featured on a film classics appreciation program broadcast in New York by CUNY TV, the cable television station operated by the City University of New York. A 2005 article on Film Threat and a follow-up interview on the same site with Bourla resulted in its DVD debut in 2006.[2]
