The Intruder

The Intruder

A film by Roger Corman

USA, 1962, 84'

Early 1960s. Racist agitator Adam Crane arrives in the southern town of Caxton in order to incite the violent rebellion of the local white population against the recent law to integrate the black minority in schools. This is Corman's most personal project, fully self-funded and filmed in southern towns for a more realistic approach. The protagonist is the debutant William Shatner in the role of the mephistophelic Crane, the remaining roles portrayed by local people who, as soon as they realised the theme of the film, tried to cast out Corman and his team. It’s the most critically praised Corman film, screened at Venice and Cannes, but it’s also the legendary producer's only box office failure.
