ON THE WATERFRONT

Directed by Elia Kazan

(1954) “I coulda been a contender,” agonizes Marlon Brando’s pigeon-raising ex-pug Terry Malloy, as he gets mixed-up in corruption and murder in a Hoboken longshoremen’s union, thanks to brother/mob mouthpiece Rod Steiger, then must face victim’s sister Eva Marie Saint.

THE WILD ONE

Starring Marlon Brando

(1953, Laslo Benedek) “What’re you rebelling against?” “Whaddya got?” In an image that launched a million posters, biker Marlon Brando and his gang zoom into Wrightsville (get it?) and shake things up good – but there’s Lee Marvin’s off-the-wall rival leader to contend with. DCP. Approx. 79 mins.

“A sleazy good time.”
– Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
