Read CP's short take on the film here.

ON THE WATERFRONT. Elia Kazan’s award-winning dark 1954 drama about standing up to the mob, corrupt unions and cooperating (or not) with a crime commission is often seen as thinly veiled justification for Kazan’s naming names for the HUAC anti-Communist hearings. Regardless, this gripping story of a washed-up boxer and errand-runner forced to confront his shaky ethics features a cluster of fine method actors including the young Marlon Brando, Karl Malden, Rod Steiger, Eva Marie Sait and Lee J. Cobb, and gritty location shooting at the New Jersey docks.
