TONIGHT’S FILM : On The Waterfront (1954 B/W 92m 12 Cert)

Marlon Brando gives an Oscar-winning performance as an ex-prize fighter turned
longshoreman struggling to stand up to his corrupt union bosses. This eight time
Academy Award winner also stars Eva Marie Saint, Rod Steiger and Karl Malden.

On the Waterfront is a 1954 American crime drama film directed by Elia Kazan and written by Budd Schulberg. It stars Marlon Brando and features Karl Malden, Lee J. Cobb, Rod Steiger, Pat Henning, and, in her film debut, Eva Marie Saint. The soundtrack score was composed by Leonard Bernstein.

The film focuses on union violence and corruption amongst longshoremen while detailing widespread corruption, extortion, and racketeering on the waterfronts of Hoboken, New Jersey.

On the Waterfront was a critical and commercial success and received twelve Academy Award nominations, winning eight, including Best Picture, Best Actor for Brando, Best Supporting Actress for Saint, and Best Director for Kazan. In 1997, it was ranked by the American Film Institute as the eighth-greatest American movie of all time and in AFI’s 2007 list it was ranked 19th. It is Bernstein’s only original film score not adapted from a stage production with songs.
