Paul Massie

  1. Vincent Price, The Last Man on Earth, 1963.       Hammer’s Dr Jekyll, circa 1959, Stanley Baker, Laurence Harvey, Kieron Moore were the choices for Dr Robert Morgan in the previous decade when Hammer Films tried to aidapt the Richard Matheson book with director Fritz Lang. Matheson hated the result and Vinny. So did Charlton Heston when planning his take (The Omega Man, 1970), calling it incredibly botched, totally unfrightening, ill-acted, etc, etc.  Rather like the reviews of his version which had damn little to do with the novel.
