The Intruder (1962 - Roger Corman [Amazon.com] [FR] [DE] [UK]


The Intruder is the greatest irony of Roger Corman's film career. In 1962, after cranking out dozens of exploitation quickies and gaining recognition for his widescreen Edgar Allan Poe series, he put up his own resources to produce a serious work of drama on the explosive issue of racism and integration. Shot on location in a small town in Missouri, where he and his crew faced bigotry first hand when the locals found out exactly what they were actually shooting, the film went on to win rave reviews and film festival prizes and became Corman's first film to lose money. --Sean Axmaker for Amazon.com

Charles Beaumont (January 2, 1929 - February 21, 1967) was a prolific U.S. author of science fiction who frequently wrote for The Twilight Zone TV series. He was born in Chicago, Illinois as Charles Leroy Nutt to an abusive mother who frequently dressed him in girls' clothes and once killed one of his pets as punishment. Beaumont was an outgoing, spontaneous person, prone to take trips out of country at a moment's notice. At age 34, Beaumont began to suffer from Alzheimer's disease; He died in Woodland Hills, California at the age of 38. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Beaumont [Aug 2005]
