The Omega Man on VHS. Starring Charlton Heston, Rosalind Cash, Anthony Zerbe. Directed by Boris Sagal. Based on the novel I Am Legend by Richard Matheson. 1971.
From the VHS box:
Pray For The Last Man Alive. Because He’s Not Alone.
Welcome to the future. Biological warfare has decimated humankind. Los Angeles is a windswept ghost town where Robert Neville tools his convertible through sunlit streets foraging for supplies. And makes damn sure he gets undercover before sundown, when other “survivors” emerge.
The Omega Man adapts Twilight Zone alumnus Richard Matheson’s classic sci-fi novel I Am Legend into a high-impact, high-tension tale of a future not far removed from the realm of possibility. Charlton Heston (who has starred in other futuristic movie greats as Planet of the Apes and Soylent Green) is Neville, crusading to keep himself alive — and to fend off “The Family,” blood-thirsty neopeople that aren’t quite human anymore.
Rosalind Cash co-stars as the caretaker of a small band of healthy children who represent the future of our species — if she and Neville can keep them from “The Family’s” grasp. Take The Omega Man into your grasp. At first a sensational action film, it also raises chilling questions about where humankind is headed. Like the best science fiction always does.

Charlton Heston and Richard Harris are unwilling allies in director Sam Peckinpah’s spectacular Western adventure.
When Apaches massacre a U.S. cavalry troop in New Mexico, Major Dundee (Heston) assembles an army of cutthroats, renegades and Confederate prisoners led by his hated counterpart, Captain Tyreen (Harris).

Aiding a ravaged village, the men are honored with a fiesta, and the Major finds solace with beautiful Teresa Santiago (Senta Berger). But this idyll is only temporary.

Columbia Airlines’ flight 409, piloted by Captain Stacy, is on its way from Washington, D.C. to Los Angeles when it is struck by a small plane, leaving a gaping hole in the nose of the giant aircraft. Stacy is critically injured and his co-pilot killed, forcing chief stewardess Nancy Pryor to take the controls. Back on the ground, a daring rescue mission is planned: former jet pilot Alan Murdoch is to be lowered from a helicopter into the yawning hole of the 747 to land it safely.
It’s a treacherous mission and one of the most spectacular stunts ever filmed!
