On the Waterfront

Part of the Fabulous 4K Season


The story of dockworker and former boxer Terry Malloy (Marlon Brando) breaking the stranglehold that corrupt union boss Johnny Friendly (Lee J. Cobb) has over the waterfront, Kazan’s film is a tour de force for the director, Brando and cinematographer Boris Kaufman.

With an electrifying score by Leonard Bernstein, the film is a milestone in American screen acting: the celebrated scene in the back of a taxi in which Terry confronts his crooked brother Charley (Steiger) is a riveting vindication of the Actors’ Studio method of inhabiting a character’s psyche.
