Based on a 1954 novel, the filming of I AM LEGEND completed in New York City recently, with spectacular and complicated set designs and stunts. I know that my two readers will recognize this photo of a burned-out car on Washington Square North. We wondered what was up with the wrecked cars all over one of the city's most beautiful blocks, and the camo netting covering planters in the park. In the story, Will Smith plays the sole survivor of a vampire plague, an Army doctor who stays behind on the island of Manhattan after the whole place is evacuated. I guess the Shepherd survives as well.
