ON THE WATERFRONT (1954)

"I coulda been a contenduh," agonizes ex-boxer Terry Malloy (Marlon Brando) as he gets mixed up in corruption and murder in a Hoboken longshoreman's union, thanks to his brother, mob mouthpiece Charley (Rod Steiger). When he's forced to face his victim's sister, Edie (Eva Marie Saint, in her debut film role), Terry incarnates a new American film archetype, the sensitive man of few words. His minimalist dialogue scenes with Edie arguably top even the legendary cab confrontation with Charley. "If there is a better performance by a man in the history of film in America, I don't know what it is," said director Elia Kazan. The film won eight Oscars®, including Best Picture, Director, Actor, Supporting Actress, Screenplay and Cinematography; the Oscar®-nominated score is by Leonard Bernstein. DIR Elia Kazan; SCR Budd Schulberg; PROD Sam Spiegel. U.S., 1954, b&w, 108 min. NOT RATED
