Speaking of Kazan--somehow I ended up watching "On the Waterfront" on TCM a couple of weeks ago. I had never seen it, as it's one of those films that one hears so much about and sees clips (at least one clip) too often. I always thought of it as a macho flick about boxing and moving stuff around on docks, and had no interest in it. But I was flipping channels and happened to see the beginning, and when the guy was thrown off the roof, I was intrigued. And it was great. Why didn't anyone tell me it started with a murder?

My mind was so blown by the revelations that 1) you had never seen "On the Waterfront" and 2) that you thought it was a sorta kinda by-the-numbers boxing flick that I almost overlooked the fact that you thought it was great. Well, my opinion of your opinion is intact. It is definitely one of the great films.
