The movies’ most famous taxi ride? Director Elia Kazan’s first outing after his appearance as a “friendly witness” in the HUAC hearings tackles a washed-up fighter’s courageous stand against the gangsters controlling the longshoremen’s union. Brando’s powerful Best Actor performance was considered by his director the greatest in American film. “A heart-clutcher from beginning to end” (Village Voice).
