While there have been 3 adaptations of Richard Matheson's acclaimed I AM LEGEND, NONE have been faithful to Matheson's novel. Matheson DID write a script for I AM LEGEND and sold it to Hammer Films. However both the US and British Censor Boards had objections to the script. Matheson was sent a 2-page letter of changes that were demanded (the letter appears in the book). Both Matheson and Hammer films declined to make these changes. To this date the script has not been used as the basis for any of the filmed adaptations. Here for the first time is Matheson's censored script. Also included are his scripts for "The Distributor" and "Sweethearts and Horrors"

From the Publisher:

Mark Dawidziak, best known for his work on the films and TV series "Kolchak" edited the section dealing with "I Am Legend" including an interview with Richard Matheson. Matthew Bradley (The Richard Matheson Companion) edited the section dealing with "The Distributor" and Matheson wrote introductions to both "The Distributor" and "Sweethearts and Horrors".

Book Description Gauntlet Press, United States, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 216 x 140 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. Three versions of Richard Matheson s classic novel I AM LEGEND have been filmed, but NONE have faithfully captured Matheson s novel. Matheson himself wrote a script for I AM LEGEND which was purchased by Hammer Films. Sadly, the US and British Censor Boards demanded changes both Matheson and the filmmaker refused to make. For the first time the reader can see Matheson s vision for his novel, far different than any of the film adaptations. Two other unproduced scripts fill out the 525-page book -- The Distributor and Sweethearts and Horrors. Mark Dawidziak edited the I Am Legend section with his insightful analysis. Includes an afterword by R.C. Matheson. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9781934267080
