Description

The classic, universal tale of the corrupting influence of power, the healing force of love, and how the truth must always be told - heedless of the consequences. In the New York docks of the 1950s, at least ten per cent of everything is paid to the mob. Longshoremen looking for work either pay kickbacks or face starvation. One-time fight contender Terry Malloy has been led into crime by his older brother Charley, and he's being used in a plot to get young Joey Doyle murdered for not 'dummying up'. Terry finds the courage to blow the whole scam wide open, once and for all, and leads his fellow workers to a confrontation with the crime bosses. As a film, On the Waterfront made a star of Marlon Brando. This powerful radio drama was recorded in Hollywood, in the presence of its Oscar-winning author Budd Schulberg, and first broadcast to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the film's release. It features a bonus interview with the author.
