Hello, everyone! I am movie’d out this weekend after our watching of the whole Dark Knight Trilogy as well as Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels. This coming weekend I will be out of town without Internet, so I am bumping each day up! Today is like Monday, so we’re going to select the movie…TO THE RANDOM NUMBER GENERATOR!
110…We’re Watching “On the Waterfront.” 1954, another apparent classic I am loathe to say I never heard of! A quick glance tells us it stars Marlon Brando, which is usually a good thing.
Synopsis: “Terry Malloy dreams about being a prize fighter, while tending his pigeons and running errands at the docks for Johnny Friendly, the corrupt boss of the dockers union. Terry witnesses a murder by two of Johnny’s thugs, and later meets the dead man’s sister and feels responsible for his death. She introduces him to Father Barry, who tries to force him to provide information for the courts that will smash the dock racketeers.” Courtesy of IMDB.
I imagine my followers know this one better than I. I’m a fan of boxing films. Judging by the synopsis, though, this isn’t going to be Cinderella Man. I’m always happy to find gems! So let’s dig into this one starting bright and early tomorrow. We’ll get some trailers in.
