OMEGA MAN 3D Trailer

Those of you who know a bit about "The Last Man on Earth" and the original source material in Richard Matheson's "I am Legend" book will no doubt know that the book has been adapted and filmed 3 times (possibly four) and that the Vincent Price versions was just the first of these.


With that in mind we thought we'd go ahead and convert the trailer's for the other two versions into 3D as part of our JFF conversion sharing initiative. And now ladies and gentlemen for our first "I am Legend" trailer I'm proud to present Charlton Heston in "The Omega Man" Trailer in 3D!



So don't just lie there...



Charlton is waiting for you...



This version was written by John William Corrington and Joyce Corrington, again based on the dystopian novel I Am Legend by Richard Matheson.



The film differs from the novel (and the previous film) in several ways. In the novel, humanity is destroyed by a bacterial plague spread by bats and mosquitoes, which turns the population into vampire-like creatures; whereas, in this film version, biological warfare is the cause of the plague that kills most of the population by asphyxiation and turns most of the rest into nocturnal albino mutants



In Charlton Heston's autobiography, he mentioned that the "crucifixion" scene with Neville was not in the original script. As it turns out, the scene was felt to fit quite well into the storyline, so was left in.



Whoopi Goldberg has remarked that the kiss between the characters played by Charlton Heston and Rosalind Cash was one of the first interracial kisses to appear in a movie. In 1992, when Goldberg had her own network interview talk show, she invited Heston to be a guest, and asked him about the kiss. After discussing whether Heston received any flak for the kiss at the time, Goldberg said that she wished that society could get past interracial relationships being an issue, at which point Heston leaned forward and demonstrated on the unsuspecting Goldberg, to her delight.
