PALMDALE – The Palmdale Playhouse, located at 38334 10th St. East in Palmdale, will show the 1954 American crime drama film “On the Waterfront,” on Sunday, March 13 in the next installment in its Winter Classic Movie Series.
Starring Marlon Brando, Karl Malden and Eva Marie Saint, the film tells the story of dockworker Terry Malloy (Brando) who had been an up-and-coming boxer until powerful local mob boss Johnny Friendly (Lee J. Cobb) convinced him to throw a fight. When a longshoreman is murdered before he can testify about Friendly's control of the Hoboken waterfront, Terry teams up with the deadman's sister Edie (Eva Marie Saint) and the streetwise priest Father Barry (Karl Malden) to testify himself, against the advice of Friendly's lawyer, Terry's older brother Charley (Rod Steiger).
