The Omega Man: A Prophetic Cautionary Tale
[Hearing the infected "Family" loudly holding a book-burning revel] At it again, I see? What will it be tonight? Museum of Science? Some library? Poor miserable bastards.

Robert Neville (Charlton Heston), finding other semi-immune people. 

The 1970s produced three prophetic science fiction films, Planet of the Apes, Soylent Green, and The Omega Man. Each showed a possible outcome for mankind based on known human behavior and events of the time. Planet of the Apes showed us a world now dominated by another species after mankind’s annihilation from atomic warfare. Soylent Green gave us a world so ruined by overpopulation and neglect of the environment, that it left us with an unthinkable outcome of eating our own. And then there was the Omega Man.

The Omega Man was based on sci-fi writer Richard Matheson, “I am Legend” and while there are three versions of this story on film, “Last Man on Earth” (1964), “The Omega Man” (1971) and “I am Legend” (2007), over the years it is “The Omega Man” that still resonates the most with people, as demonstrated by the commentary on "YouTube". 

Unlike the other versions of the story, this one is the most realistic about germ warfare and pandemics and has stood the test of time despite the very 70’s flavor of the film. The story starts with a war raging on between China and Russia. An American Army scientist, Robert Neville is working on a vaccine for the probable pandemic cause when the US bombed a Chinese missile carrying a disease they developed. The failed attempt left the world now exposed to the disease. The infection spreads very quickly. Hospitals become overwhelmed. The level of infection varied; most died very quickly, some had a level of immunity, others became sick which led to sun sensitivity syndrome which left them as night dwellers. Robert Neville, is the only man fully immune, after inoculating himself during the pandemic. If this all sounds kind of familiar, well how could it not?

This film along with others have become popular watching during the current pandemic. This all sounds rather counter initiative. Instead of trying to get away from the pressure that comes with a pandemic, they actually choose to watch another pandemic unfold.

And what is even stranger, is that people can watch this movie and not take it as the timely cautionary tale. We should be and learn from it and see what is predicted. The virus in the movie although nastier than COVID19, still showed how it affected people differently, killing some while others present with strange unseen syndromes. The lab in Wuhan, China possibly creating this virus; News reports that hospitals have become overwhelmed. States of Emergency were declared, protested, and ignored. The rush for a vaccine and treatments with antibodies.  All of this is in the Omega Man. 

On a sociological level, it is even more prophetic. The living ill, have decided that science is not to be trusted. They are focused on killing Nevel, the only scientist left alive, even if he can cure them. The idea that the disease will not kill them but bring herd immunity. It is almost shocking that Richard Matheson, so many years ago, got it so spot on. How can we not draw parallels to it? Yet, we see people still making the same mistakes. It is remarkable that we can be so blind.

Hopefully, most of us will make it in time until a vaccine is developed. But will we learn from this experience or will we live to become part of a different sci-fi movie? We are looking ripe for Soylent Green.

It's a great movie Trout. I think I might watch it tonight. 

I recently read an interview with Tim Burton who said that this was his all-time favorite movie. 

Here is an interview with him talking about the movie:

It's more dated than "I am Legend," but the germ warfare aspect and how it all played out is the interesting part of the story. Also, unlike the monsters of, "I am Legend", the sick in the Omega Man, are more human and actually are relatable.

Another little fun fact about this movie. It was the first interracial kiss in an American film, although it had been already done by Star Trek in 1968. 

Here is Whoopy Goldberg discussing it with Charlton Heston. Watch till the very end for a laugh.

John, you are wrong about Charlton Heston. Although later in his life he became a conservative, he spent the bulk of the first part of his life, fighting for civil rights. He has issues with George McGovern that sent him over the edge, politically, but he still spent a lot of time on civil rights issues.

May 2, 1999

DENVER -- As 8,000 anti-gun demonstrators -- rallied by the anguished pleas of the father of a slain Columbine High School student -- marched in protest, the National Rifle Association held a scaled-back meeting here yesterday.

But although the group's members were outnumbered nearly 4-to-1 by the protesters, the mood among NRA members meeting in a basement ballroom was exuberantly defiant.

"Each horrible act can't become an ax for opportunists to cleave the very Bill of Rights that binds us," NRA President Charlton Heston told a cheering overflow crowd, many wearing blue-and-silver Columbine memorial ribbons fastened with NRA buttons.

Following the shootings April 20 at the school in suburban Littleton, in which two students killed 13 people before committing suicide, Denver Mayor Wellington Webb repeatedly asked the group to cancel its annual meeting. Instead, it cut back its schedule from three days to one and canceled exhibits.

"What saddens me most [about Webb's request]," Heston said after the group held a moment of silence for the Columbine victims, "is how that suggests complicity. It implies that 80 million honest gun owners are somehow to blame that you and I should not be as shocked and horrified as everyone else."

About the time Heston, a prominent Hollywood actor, was stepping to the podium, demonstrators gathered on the steps of the state Capitol a few blocks away to denounce the NRA's decision to follow through with its convention when -- as one clergyman said -- "the dust from the graves of our children has not even settled."

Reagan changed as a much younger man. He was influenced by his father in law. Heston was getting up there when he changed. But he was friends with Reagen for sure.

I'm never really sure what causes people to have such big changes in their lives. I have held almost the same beliefs most of my life. Some discussions here have made me change my mind about things but fundamentally I am the same Perrie I was when I was in my 20's.

Same here and my whole family. It was because the possibility was there at the time. Now supposedly all the world countries have signed on to not using germ warfare, so now we only have "defensive labs", LOL. 16 countries plus Taiwan have these labs. Here is the list:

What Countries Have Them?

Only 16 countries plus Taiwan have had or are currently suspected of having biological weapons programs: Canada, China, Cuba, France, Germany, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Japan, Libya, North Korea, Russia, South Africa, Syria, the United Kingdom and the United States.  

There is widespread consensus against the possession and use of biological weapons. Most countries are party to the  Biological and Toxin Weapon Convention , but there is no way to know whether countries are complying with their commitments.

Interesting story. When the founder, Vernon Rudolph passed in 1973 the firm slowed down, eventually being bought by Beatrice Foods and suffered a continuing decline and series of closures until 1982

when original investors and franchisees grouped together to buy the rights to the name and automated processes back from Beatrice Foods and concentrated on regrowing the brand in SE USA.

In 1992 they went international.  Although they only have 362 locations in the USA, they have over 700 locations worldwide now, almost 1,100 franchises.

The location on RT1 in Bensalem Pa was always a family favorite Sunday morning visit.  It did not survive the 80's but the company recently built one nearby on Street road.

The fact that in the story China developed and installed in a missile a contagious disease plays well into the O'Donnell playbook guidelines to deflect from Trump's mishandling and blaming China, so I suppose the insertion of this line in the article was necessary as well:

"The lab in Wuhan, China possibly creating this virus;"  (Which is NOT true - there is more than ample evidence from respected scientists that it is natural, not created, nor is there proof it escaped from a lab).

Donnie should be happy with this article being posted - it helps to back up his conspiracy theory.

There have been so many  movies made about "Virus Armageddon", a new cold virus showing up doesn't cause me to get Hysterical. If the likes of the "Black Plague" hits, I'll then be a bit nervous.   Other than that....these are always going to be "just movies" to me !
