On the Waterfront

Winner of the Academy Award for Best Picture and Actor


Mob-connected union boss Johnny Friendly (Lee J. Cobb) gloats about his iron-fisted control of the waterfront. The police and the Waterfront Crime Commission know that Friendly is behind a number of murders, but witnesses play "D and D" ("deaf and dumb"), accepting their subservient position, rather than risking the danger and shame of informing, that is, until Terry Malloy (Marlon Brando) fights back.
