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.

On the Waterfront is one of the most powerful films ever made. Marlon Brando was simply beautiful and so hypnotic he literally drinks you into the screen.
Proud to say that On the Waterfront is my favourite film. Thank you dad for introducing it to me when I was a little girl. ☺️
