The Movie: The Intruder (1962)
What Is It?: Roger Corman, the so-called “King of the B-Movies,” makes a “message film” infinitely more fearless than any other such picture of its era. William Shatner is chilling as a despicable shit stirrer who travels south to incite a violent backlash against school integration.
Why Today?: On this day in 1956, the Supreme Court outlaws segregated buses in Alabama.
