WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

This stunning and newly released stage adaptation of On the Waterfront by the original screenplay author departs from cinematic realism to provide a piece of dockside expressionism. The hero remains Terry Molloy, the ex-boxer and waterfront bum who takes on the corrupt union mafia. Driven by love for the sister of one of the mob's victims, and spurred on by a militant Catholic priest, he rejects the strenuous claims both of his brother and the racketeers, and testifies to the Crime Commission.
