"Decency overcomes corruption"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Tired of being used by crooks, a longshoreman stands up for what is right.

Based on Pulitzer Prize winning journalism by Malcolm Johnson this movie earns all of the 8 Oscars it won.

Not 1 second drags, no questions go unanswered. I enjoyed every minute of it

Description

Marlon Brando gives one of the screen`s most electrifying performances as Best Actor in this 1954 Academy Award winner for Best Films.

Ex-fighter Terry Malloy (Brando from THE GODFATHER) could have been a contender, but now toils for boss Johnny Friendly (Lee J Cobb for THE EXORCIST) on the gang-ridden waterfront. Terry is guilt-stricken, however, when he lures a rebellious worker to his death. But it takes the love of Edie Doyle (Eva Marie Saint from NORTH BY NORTHWEST), the dead mans sister, to show Terry how low he has fallen. When his crooked brother Charley the Gent (Rod Steiger from IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT) is brutally murdered for refusing to kill him, Terry battles to crush Friendlys underworld empire.

Directed by Elia Kazan (A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE) and written by Budd Schulberg (WHAT MAKES SAMMY RUN?), this unforgettable drama about Terry`s redemption is among the most acclaimed of all films.

Best Picture Oscar Winner 1954.
Best Picture (Drama) Golden Globe Winner 1954.
