"44 years ago, Marlon Brando didn't weigh 350 pounds."
I can't believe no one else reviewed this film yet.On the Waterfront is a classic film and features a young Marlon Brando, before he became large and scary. This is the role that he won his first Best Actor Oscar for.
It's about an ex-boxer who helps the Mob kill this guy, but that wasn't his intention. So he basically has to take on the Mob by himself and his brother is one of the higher ups in the Mob. That's how I remember it, at least, I haven't seen it in a while.
Anyway, it's really excellent and probably Brando's best performance with the classic "Charlie, it was you..." monologue.It's really a shame Brando's been making crap like "The Island of Dr. Moreau" lately.
