Today marks the 100th birthday of actor/St. Louis resident/art collector Vincent Price, who was best known for doing a lot of horror films. So many that as a guy who grew up watching most of his stuff - his work with Roger Corman on adapting the works of Edgar Allen Poe; The Tingler with William Castle, or even (personal favorite) The Abominable Dr. Phibes/Dr Phibes Rises Again - I'm at a loss to choose one to highlight.
However, since I write about public domain films on occasion, I'm going to feature the Italian-made The Last Man on Earth, the earliest adaptation of Richard Matheson's I Am Legend. I can't say it's one of my favorite Vincent Price movies, but there is a kind of eerie creepiness about it that still tends to get under my skin.
And now, for your enjoyment, please watch - and distribute to your friends on the Interwebs. Because we're all trying to stretch our entertainment dollars, and this is one of those movies that's worth staying in to see.
