Welcome to the site, Mr. Fingerman.

Thanks for correcting me on which is the version closest to the original Matheson novella.

Readers, Mr. Fingerman is an author and comic book artist whose work includes Beg the Question and Bottomfeeder.

I just watched it two nights ago and was very impressed. It's beautifully shot and the performances (even from Ferrer, who has been known to be a bit, um, wooden) were top-notch. Great, haunting B&W cinematography. And boy, now having seen it, it is patently obvious the Will Smith movie must have referenced it (way more than I am Legend, which is one of my favorite, most-often reread books). Here's hoping they never remake this movie. They got it right first time around.

Oh, and just as a minor aside, the first adaptation of I am Legend, starring Vincent Price, is arguably the closest to the source material (the screenplay was even by Matheson, though he so disliked the end result he took his name off it and replaced it with the pseudonym Logan Swanson.

Still trying to track this down, it's sort of become a mini-project of mine to figure out a way to see it.

a trailer or two and a scene. nothing overly substantial. It's a super-bummer. E-mailed Criterion (but we all know how that usually ends up) this just looks to fantastic not to see!

Yeah, this is a tough one. I caught it on TCM. I wonder if it might be available on YouTube. Sometimes you find some rare ones there briefly before they take them down.
