Thanks for the help on the 80s film i will look out for them 
in the mid 70s there was some blue type movies that used to air late friday nights One was a guy and a girl after the fall of civilization wandering around having a good time then they run into a middle aged male who tries to steal her away any ideas anyone I think it was a fairly short flick and really poorly edited Thanks

I think the movie your looking for is The Quiet Earth (1985)

Could it be GLEN AND RANDA (1971)?  Certainly it's about a guy and girl wandering around after the end of civilization, more than that I cannot say.

THE QUIET EARTH sounds about right, but there is also THE WORLD, THE FLESH, AND THE DEVIL (1959) with Harry Belafonte. It too has a love triangle after civilization has collapsed.

I don't think it's The Quiet Earth. The plot is similar, but the original guy in The Quiet Earth was middle-aged himself.

I also understood that the poster said he saw the film in the mid-1970s, which would rule out THE QUIET EARTH.

Plotwise, it sounds similar to THE WORLD, THE FLESH AND THE DEVIL although there love blooms between a black man and white woman and then a middle aged white man arrives on the scene. THE LAST WOMAN ON EARTH has a similar type story too only in that one it's a young guy who steals away Betsy Jones-Moreland from her middle age husband.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
