Movie Dude Weekend: I am Legend marathon

This last week for Movie Dude Weekend we watched film adaptations of Richard Matheson's science-fiction novel I Am Legend:

The Last Man on Earth, 1964

a.k.a. The Damned Walk at Midnight, The Night Creatures, Vento di Morte, L'Ultimo Uomo della Terra
Director: Ubaldo Ragona, Sidney Salkow
Cast: V
incent Price, Franca Bettoja, Tony Cerevi, Emma Danieli

Omega Man, 1971

: Boris Sagal
Cast: Ch
arlton Heston, Anthony Zerbe, Rosalind Cash, Paul Koslo

I Am Legend, 2007

Director: Francis Lawrence
Cast: Will Smith, Alice Braga, Charlie Tahan, Salli Richardson-Whitfield

Movie Dude and Just Me both felt that Omega Man was the best movie of the three, but they are rather partial to Charlton Heston.

Just Me: What would I wear if I were the last person on earth?
Movie Dude: I'd go naked.
Just Me: I wouldn't
Movie Dude: I know, I'd wear my Sith robe!
Just me: Oh! Good idea!

Sorry Movie Dude Weekend's have been scarce for several weeks. We're trying to pack to move. Movies watched on the 10th included the last two Indiana Jones movies, The Last Crusade (1989) and The Crystal Skull (2008). The next weekend, the 16th, was viewers choice. Just Me picked Terminator Two: Judgement Day (1991) and Movie Dude picked Jaws (1975).
