Shatnerday



Above are stills from The Intruder, the first film Shatner starred in. Shatner plays a race-baiting son of a bitch who goes to a small southern town during desegregation and whips the local populace into a frenzy. Directed by B-movie king Roger Corman (Death Race 2000, Battle Beyond the Stars, countless others), this film is noted as being the only Corman-directed project he lost money on. I really ought to watch this flick sometime, as I've seen multiple critics online claim The Intruder is the best work of both men.
