Still image from the film The Intruder
Adam Cramer (William Shatner) is a white-supremacist agitator who arrives in a Southern town on the eve of racial integration, winning over the townsfolk with his slick message of hate. But when a local newspaper editor begins pushing back, Cramer’s campaign of terror spins out of control. Self-produced after no company wanted to touch its controversial subject matter, The Intruder was a rare box-office failure for Corman. Yet it remains not only one of his finest films, but one of the first movies to address the civil rights struggle head-on. 35mm print courtesy of the Academy Film Archive. (35mm presentation)

Director Roger Corman is scheduled to be present.

Partial support for Roger Corman's visit to Indiana came from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
