THE INTRUDER (1962): After nearly a decade of directing genre films, Roger Corman turned to dramatic social commentary with this film about a charismatic stranger (William Shatner) who stirs up racist sentiment in a small Southern town to prevent school integration from happening there. This lightning rod of a film is blistering in its critique of American racism, and considered by many to be Corman's masterpiece. Alex Stapleton, director of the critically-acclaimed documentary CORMAN'S WORLD: EXPLOITS OF A HOLLYWOOD REBEL joins us for the discussion.
