The Last Man on Earth

The Last Man on Earth is a 1964 Vincent Price film. It's the first of 3 adaptations of Matheson's book I Am Legend (the 2nd being Omega Man and the 3rd I Am Legend).

It's online at googlevideo:

and at the Internet Archive.

SciFi.com says,
Vincent Price is the linchpin of the entire affair. Through his skill and will, the production is graced with believability and pathos.

1000 Misspent Hours praises Vincent Price's performance while panning everything else. Moria has a review that points out that this is the only film version that maintains the novel's ending. Stomp Tokyo says the film "supplies some powerful imagery".

5/30/2009: Vault of Horror has a review which praises the film and says, "if you want to see the original undead apocalypse movie, this is where you need to go."
