Movie Moles: On the Waterfront

Categories:

Mon, 09/12/2011

Joe Clement and Jan Haaken talk about the classic labor-oriented film, "On the Waterfront". Starring Marlan Brando, Terry Malloy is a dockworker who struggles with his received sense of "it's every man for himself" and his conscience and sense of duty to his fellow workers being exploited by a corrupt union-boss. They relate it to the recent   ILWU struggle in Longview and the history of dockworker and all unions as agents of social justice and not just, as the film might suggest, victims of corrupt bosses.
