Due to an experimental vaccine, Dr. Robert Neville is the only survivor of an apocalyptic war waged with biological weapons. The plague caused by the war has killed everyone else except for a few hundred deformed, nocturnal people calling themselves "The Family". The plague has caused them to become sensitive to light, as well as homicidally psychotic. They believe science and technology to be the cause of the war and their punishment, and Neville, as the last symbol of science, the old world, and a "user of the wheel", must die. Neville, using electricity, machinery, and science attempts to hold them at bay. Written by

In the film, the plague that causes the end of the world was unleashed by germ warfare as the result of a border war between China and Russia. In fact, China and Russia had some very serious border skirmishes during 1969 that had many world leaders concerned about the possibility of an all-out war between the Communist superpowers. See more
In the opening sequence, right after Neville starts his 8-track, he's driving on Flower & turns left on Wilshire. The very next turn he makes is also a left - from Flower to Wilshire. This is not directionally possible - he would have to go around the block to make the same turn again. You can confirm by looking at the distinctive buildings in the background & noting where Flower curves into Hope St in the background just beyond the 4th street overpass for both shots. See more
