Former boxer Terry Malloy and his brother Charley, the crooked lawyer known to all as 'the Gent', are members of the tough, mobster-connected New York Longshoremen Union, run by Johnny Friendly. Johnny and his goons rule the waterfront with an iron fist, meaning that if you want to stay alive, you do things Johnny's way: plead 'D & D' - deaf and dumb. On The Waterfront is one of the most gripping tales of political corruption and individual heroism of our time. The 1954 film, starring Marlon Brando, achieved massive critical acclaim and went on to win eight Oscars, including Best Actor for Brando as well as Best Film and Best Screenplay for Schulberg. On The Waterfront is rightly considered a modern classic and is as powerful a read today as it was fifty years ago.
