Critic Reviews for Intruder in the Dust
As producer and director. Brown has maintained brilliant balance between the film's melodrama and its powerful social message.
Intruder in the Dust is not only a great social document but an engrossing, thrilling story of courage and passion.
While we may not like what we see on the screen, we must admit that Brown's intention in capturing the Faulkner yarn on film was a meritorious one.January 29, 2021 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
Good performances by Juano Hernandez, Claude Jarman Jr., David Brian and others, and superbly directed by Clarence Brown.
Its great effectiveness lies less in its story than in, for instance, the picture it presents of the crowds gathering outside the gaol waiting for the dreadful, murderous show. The horror of this crowd is in its very casualness, its almost festive air.
