Roger Corman and William Shatner talk about their experience making The Intruder, often hailed as Corman's best film. Corman is commonly known as a prolific director of B-movies like the original Little Shop of Horrors, but "The Intruder" was an attempt to make a "legitimate" film with serious social commentary. It was one of Shatner's first starring film roles.

Excerpted from Wikipedia: The Intruder is a 1962 American film directed by Roger Corman, after a novel by Charles Beaumont, starring William Shatner. Also called Shame in US release, and The Stranger in the UK release. The story centers around the machinations of a racist named Adam Cramer (portrayed by Shatner), who arrives in the fictitious small southern town of Caxton in order to incite townspeople to racial violence against the town's Black minority and court-ordered school integration.

The film was shot in black and white on location in Missouri. The production was thrown out of East Prairie, Missouri, and Charleston, Missouri, because the locals objected to the film's addressing racism and segregation. Although it only had a budget of $80,000, the film lost money at the box office, as the major studios had predicted.
