The Last Man on Earth (1964)

When I was a kid, I was lent a copy of the story, “I am Legend” and fell in love with it. As soon as I found out that a movie had been made years earlier starring Vincent Price, I sought it out. It has been a staple of my entertainment library ever since. I highly suggest your read the story, but if reading ain’t your thing, you can watch the Vincent Price iteration “The Last Man on Earth” on Hulu. It is far superior to the modern “I am Legend” with Will Smith and while “The Omega Man” is interesting, it lacks the simple loneliness of the “The Last Man on Earth”.
