Films of Elia Kazan: "On the Waterfront"

Event Type: Adult Program
Date: 10/15/2014
Start Time: 9:30 AM
End Time: 12:30 PM
Description:
 One of the most revered directors of his era, Elia Kazan (1909-2003) also remains one of the most controversial. Kazan launched a revolution in realistic screen acting at mid-century. But when he provided names to the McCarthy era investigators in the early 1950s, damaging the careers of his peers, many regarded him as an unforgivable traitor for the rest of his life.

"On the Waterfront" features Marlon Brando as an ex-prize fighter turned longshoreman struggling to stand up to his corrupt union bosses. The film won Best Picture of 1954 and Kazan won Best Director.
