Tnejn Għat-Talkies: On the Waterfront (Elia Kazan, 1954)


Tnejn Għat-Talkies: On the Waterfront (Elia Kazan, 1954)

An ex-prize fighter turned longshoreman struggles to stand up to his corrupt union bosses. Terry Malloy dreams about being a prize fighter, while tending his pigeons and running errands at the docks for Johnny Friendly, the corrupt boss of the dockers union. Terry witnesses a murder by two of Johnny’s thugs, and later meets the dead man’s sister and feels responsible for his death. She introduces him to Father Barry, who tries to force him to provide information for the courts that will smash the dock racketeers. Marlon Brando stars in this hard-hitting drama about an ex-prizefighter who goes up against labour leaders to expose corruption in the ranks.
