Event

On the Waterfront 3 July 2018
The winner of eight Academy Awards, "On the Waterfront" is director Elia Kazan's crowning achievement, with terrific performances from Marlon Brando, Eva Marie Saint, and Rod Steiger.  Brando plays former boxer Terry Malloy, who "shoulda been a contendah" but is instead hangs about the docks of New York running errands for union boss Johnny Friendly (Lee J. Cobb).  A series of crimes, and the love of Edie Doyle (Eva Marie Saint), eventually convinces Terry to turn on his former cohorts.

Kazan's interest in the project dated back to the late 1940s, when the director read about crime and corruption amongst New York longshoremen.  Arthur Miller was hired to write a screenplay called "The Hook," but after his falling out with Kazan over the director's HUAC testimony, Miller was replaced by scriptwriter Budd Schulberg.  Therefore, some have viewed "One the Waterfront" as a statement by Kazan defending his testimony.  However, the film is ultimately about one man's struggle to change a corrupt system.  

108 minutes, Not Rated.
