Quote:
The Last Man on Earth (Italian: L'ultimo uomo della Terra) is a 1964 science fiction horror film based upon the Richard Matheson 1954 novel I Am Legend. The film was directed by Ubaldo Ragona and Sidney Salkow, and stars Vincent Price. The script was written in part by Matheson, but he was dissatisfied with the result and chose to be credited as "Logan Swanson". William Leicester, Furio M. Monetti, and Ubaldo Ragona were the other writers.

The Last Man on Earth was filmed in Rome, Italy, with some location shots taken at Esposizione Universale Roma. It was released theatrically in the United States by American International Pictures, and has since fallen into the public domain. MGM Home Video, the current owners of the AIP film catalog, released a digitally remastered widescreen print on DVD in September 2005.

It's very, very faithful to the novel. Too faithful. The psychological aspects of the novel don't translate well to film, and so we get some brutal overacting, silly narration, and a pretty dull pace. It's also incredibly low-budget, so it approaches Ed Wood (the director, not the film) quality at times. There's an obvious influence on Night of the Living Dead shown, and it follows the story well, but it's just not a good film.
