Marlon Brando (The Godfather) gives the performance of his career as the tough prizefighter-turned-longshoreman Terry Malloy in this masterpiece of urban poetry, a raggedly emotional tale of individual failure and institutional corruption. n the Waterfront charts Terry`s deepening moral crisis as he must choose whether to remain loyal to the mob-connected union boss Johnny Friendly (12 Angry Men`s Lee J. Cobb) and Johnny`s right-hand man, Terry`s brother, Charley (In the Heat of the Night`s Rod Steiger), as the authorities close in on them. Driven by the vivid, naturalistic direction of Elia Kazan (Gentlemen`s Agreement) and savory, streetwise dialogue by Budd Schulberg (A Face in the Crowd), On the Waterfront was an instant sensation, winning eight Oscars, including for best picture, director, actor, supporting actress (North by Northwest`s Eva Marie Saint), and screenplay.

  • Unvergesslich...

    ... ist die Szene mit Steiger und Brando im «Auto». Der Beginn des Method Acting. Ein Wahnsinnsstreifen, dessen Machart Massstäbe zu setzen vermochte. Da reden wir von einem Klassiker schlechthin.

  • Meisterwerk

    Ein Meisterwerk schlecht hin. Ist zwar bereits etliche Jahre her seit ich diesen Film letztmals sah. Habe ihn jedoch früher unendlich oft gesehen. Marlon Brando in einer Paraderolle.
