“I am thrilled that Claude will be joining us at this year’s festival to discuss his role in a classic film and his storied career,” enthused festival producer and host Alan K. Rode. Jarmon also starred in The Yearling (1946) and Rio Grande (1950), among others.
Intruder in the Dust (1949) was adapted from William Faulkner’s novel and according to Rode was “was perhaps the most sensitive film dealing with racism that Hollywood dared to produce during the 1940s.” It is very rarely screened and not currently available on DVD.
