United States | 1962 | Roger Corman
One of Roger Corman’s most serious and powerful movies was also, reputedly, the only film of his to lose money on its initial release. William Shatner plays a rabble-rousing racist who shows up one day in a small Southern town to foment white hatred for blacks and prod them to protest the forced integration of their schools. Screenplay by frequent Twilight Zone writer Charles Beaumont.
