In "Shock Corridor", the great American writer-director-producer Samuel Fuller ("The Naked Kiss", "The Big Red One") masterfully charts the uneasy terrain between sanity and dementia. Seeking a Pulitzer Prize, reporter Johnny Barrett (Peter Breck) has himself committed to a mental hospital to investigate a murder. As he closes in on the killer, madness closes in on him. Constance Towers ("The Naked Kiss") costars as Johnny's coolheaded stripper girlfriend. With its startling commentary on race in sixties America and daring photography by Stanley Cortez ("The Night of the Hunter"), "Shock Corridor" is now recognized for its far-reaching influence.
