In my humble opinion, Richard Matheson's novel "I Am Legend" comes across much better in this 1964 version of "The Last Man On Earth" than it did in the 2007 Will Smith feature.
Shot in Italy, this stark film looks killer in a black & white!! I'm sure a lot of it has to do with the fantastic Cinematography by Franco Delli Colli!
Vincent Price puts in another tremendous performance as the last man, Dr. Robert Morgan!! Nothing to do, but count the days!!
Among other things, Vincent has a record player and listens to some swingin' jazz as a way to try and relax, meanwhile, Zombies are constantly trying to break into his pad!!
Here's a "37 second soundbite" to sharpen your axe to!!
Vinnie doesn't get out much, if he uses up the rest of the gas left in the world, he's really going to be in trouble!!
So, let's see, this film was made in 1964, and the groundbreaking "Night Of The Living Dead" wouldn't be released until four years later, in 1968!! Very interesting!!
At this point Vinnie finally makes contact with another non-zombiefied human, and so the story just finally gets started.....You can get "The Last Man On Earth" on Netflix, and it streams freely on the internet, so what are you waiting for, the end of the world???
