I am Legend

I Am Legend is a 1954 science fiction novel by Richard Matheson about the last man alive in Los Angeles, California. It has been filmed twice before, once as The Last Man on Earth in 1964 with Vincent Price. I think I saw it, I went to see most of Vincent Price’s movies back in the day, but if I did it doesn’t stand out among all his other stuff. The second movie was The Omega Man with Charlton Heston in 1971, it came out at a bad time since there had been a lot of apocalypse movies around that time. For me it also suffered because it had Charlton Heston, who for me even before he became the mouth of the NRA was always a loud, haughty, one shade movie star. Not an actor, but a star none the less. So I am looking forward to seeing hopefully the best take on this story, with Will Smith, even though they moved it from LA to NY.
