Sam Fuller (writer, director) SHOCK CORRIDOR (1963) Set of 20 photos


[Los Angeles]: Allied Artists, 1963. Set of twenty (20) vintage original 8 x 10″ (20 x 25 cm.) black-and-white glossy silver gelatin photos, about fine.

Sam Fuller wrote the script for what became Shock Corridor in the late-1940s for Fritz Lang, who wanted to make the writer character a female as a vehicle for Joan Bennett. It would be some fifteen years, though, before audiences were ready for the dark realities revealed when the writer checks himself into an insane asylum in order to investigate deaths thought to be murders which have taken place there. Grant, p. 581.

Allied Artists promoted the film under the exploitation category, much to Fuller’s displeasure, and the released still images emphasize the film’s most lurid moments.
