Current events has me watching plague movies.

I'm trying to find the oldest plague movie on Archive.org, but there sure aren't many of them.

Looks like plague movies weren't very popular in the olden days, and the few that were made weren't preserved.

There are a FEW good plague movies on Archive :

Things To Come (1935)- This early talky is a landmark science fiction film. Worth watching.

Panic In The Streets (1950) - A Noir-style drama about health department agents trying to track down patient zero.

Last Man On Earth (1964) - Vincent Price stars in a film based on 'I Am Legend'. He plays it very differently than Will Smith did.

@apLundell Last Man on Earth was my first introduction to I Am Legend and in my opinion is still the best adaptation by far
