The Intruder is an amazing film. I would recommend seeing this movie at least once in your life. William Shatner plays a charismatic bigot who comes to a small southern town to get the locals to rise up against racial integration.
The acting in this movie is great. Shatner's performance won him a few awards at film festivals and is stellar. The story itself is well written and directed. He and Roger Corman did an interview on the DVD which is quite interesting. The cast and crew themselves dealt with a lot from the local population while shooting this flick.
Once again, I highly recommend picking this one up for your collection. Or at least rent it.
