Flick Pick: On The Waterfront

On the Waterfront
(Columbia, 1954)

Magnificent cinematic landmark, talent-heavy from top to bottom, showcasing director Elia Kazan, marking Marlon Brando forever as an acting force, ably supported by Lee J. Cobb, Rod Steiger, Karl Malden, and introducing Eva Marie Saint, telling the tale of union corruption on the docks of Hoboken, with a Leonard Bernstein original score.
Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Actor (Brando), Best Supporting Actress, Best Art Direction, Best Cinematography, and Best Film Editing.
