Movie #1530: The Intruder (1962, Roger Corman)

Amazing. Roger Corman claims that this is the only movie he made that lost money. In addition, it appears that this is also Roger Corman's best movie.
Fine direction. I liked the music by Herman Stein. Screenplay and original story by Charles "Twilight Zone" Beaumont. Even William Shatner gives a fine performance!
One of those movies that makes it worthwhile to dig about in the scrapheap of movie history.
As usual, this was a crappy print. However, it doesn't appear to be available on the Internet Archives. Only on YouTube's Openflix.

  1. Finally got around to watching The Intruder. Pretty intense and unflinching look into southern integration. Agreed that Shatner did a fine job and the music really did make a difference, especially the scene where he was driving through nigger town.I don't think they could get away with making this move these days.
