• On the Waterfront (1954)

FP122: “Instead of a Bum, which is what I am.”


Elia Kazan is a director who has courted controversy, both deliberately and not, and there are factions who equally love him and despise him, due to the comments he made to HUAC that convicted some of his filmmaking colleagues. We aren’t judging him here, but rather taking close look at his 1954 film On the Waterfront.
