Irvin Kershner Directed an Anti-Comic Documentary


Bookmark and Share

Before he directed The Empire Strikes Back, Irvin Kershner directed a documentary for a 1955 documentary for KTTV television in Los Angeles that blamed comic books for crime and juvenile delinquency.  The “report” is by Paul Coates and produced by Jim Peck.  Check it out this nugget of history below.  Kershner is not given credit on his or the documentary’s IMDB page.  Even if that fact proves to be false, the documentary is worthy enough to check out.
