As last men on Earth go, Vincent Price is in the "not if you were the" category. . As an actor, though, he was highly underrated. Here, he gives his character a third dimension, and makes this film well worth watching.

This is a 1964 science fiction horror film directed by Ubaldo Ragona and Sidney Salkow, based on the Richard Matheson 1954 novel ("I Am Legend").
It was filmed in Rome, Italy, with some location shots taken at Esposizione Universale Roma.
After burying the dog Morgan spots a woman in the distance.
The woman, Ruth, is terrified of Morgan at first sight, and runs from him.
Morgan convinces her to return to his home, but is suspicious of her true nature.
Ruth becomes ill when Morgan waves garlic in her face, but claims that she has a weak stomach.
Morgan's suspicion that Ruth is infected is confirmed when he discovers her attempting to inject herself with a combination of blood and vaccine that holds the disease at bay.
Ruth tells him that she is part of a group of people like her, infected but under treatment.
At the end, Ruth's people spot Morgan and chase him.
Morgan is wounded by gunfire and retreats into a church.
Despite Ruth's protests to let Morgan live, his pursuers finally impale him on the altar with a spear.
With his dying breaths, Morgan denounces his pursuers as "freaks," and declares that he is the last true man on earth.
I really wonder what will happen to Ruth's people.
