ON THE WATERFRONT
1954. USA. Dir: Elia Kazan. With Marlon Brando, Karl Malden. 108 min.
In the wake of his HUAC testimony, Kazan gave the finger to his detractors with this powerful tale of defiance in the face of corruption. More than a “contender” at the Oscars (the film nabbed eight), WATERFRONT proves that even a bum can get righteous redemption. Intro by Joan Miller, Head Archivist, Elia Kazan Collection.
