"On the Waterfront" DVD|
"On the Waterfront" (1954) won eight Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Director (Elia Kazan), and the acting in the movie is at such a high level that five actors (Marlon Brando, Eva Marie Saint, Karl Malden, Rod Steiger, and Lee J. Cobb) received Oscar nominations for their performances. The film tells a story of love and redemption set against the gritty backdrop of labor union corruption and violence. I found myself completely enthralled while watching this movie on Columbia TriStar DVD, and the DVDs excellent special features have further enhanced my enjoyment of this great American classic.
