Marlon Brando is Terry Malloy, an ex-prize fighter struggling against union corruption along the New York waterfront, in Elia Kazan's film classic. Malloy's battle takes him all the way to the witness stand, where he finds himself testifying against union leaders. The film was Kazan's response to his decision to turn in the names of his Hollywood contemporaries during Senator Joe McCarthy's anti-Communism hearings. Lee J. Cobb, Rod Steiger, and Malden were all nominated for the Best Supporting Actor Oscars. Academy Award Nominations: 12. Academy Awards: 8, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor--Marlon Brando, Best Story and Screenplay.;

Chicago Sun-Times
"...A powerful and influential movie, one that continued Brando's immeasurable influence on the general change of tone in American movie acting in the 50's..."
Entertainment Weekly
"...ON THE WATERFRONT is Kazan's desire to justify himself to Hollywood and the world....Inarguably affecting..."
Total Film
"...It's a heavyweight actor's master class presided over by Brando as a punch-drunk former boxer..."
"It's one of the towering performances in the history of the movies..."
"ON THE WATERFRONT retains its righteous power and resonance. And Marlon is magnificent."
A.V. Club
"[T]here?s a clear line from this film to the likes of MEAN STREETS and RAGING BULL. ON THE WATERFRONT has that same mix of the stylized and the offhand, the commercial and the thorny." -- Grade: A
