Moreover, Zhang (2002) characterized the waterfront as a place integrating land with water and having a natural attraction to people. In fact, the seashore…...

On the Waterfront

 On the Waterfront The Recipient of eight Oscars (including four other nominations), On the Waterfront represented a shining light in the filmmaking industry and process. Among these Oscar were: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress, and Best Screenplay. With that many awards in such key areas, one can’t help but assume that they were each benefiting from each other. Each one adding to the others, making them even greater than they would be otherwise. There are a few scenes in the film that have become known as “classic” scenes in film history. These scenes effectively portray very real situations and character relationships that we as the audience can care about, and ultimately learn from. Over the years, many critics have praised On the Waterfront for having what has been called “a nearly perfect screenplay.” Written by Budd Schulberg, and based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning series of articles by Malcolm Johnson, the script brought the story to life. As a note of background, the film represented an opportunity for both Schulberg and Elia Kazan to escape, at least by proxy, some personal guilt they may have been harboring. By naming the names of colleagues associated with the Communist Party, they gave themselves a free pass, and were able to proceed undeterred with his own 
 career. Kazan also became one of the most high-profile witnesses to speak out and avoid blacklisting. On the Waterfront explains how it is fundamentally right to speak out in a......

...My Community John Jr June, 2011 Shepherdsville, Kentucky is where my community is. We have a very small community but pretty much very easy going. There are some issues around my community that may have racism issues such as, gender, looks, or speech in school or sometime even with jobs on who and when someone can work somewhere. These are really little problems that we have and if you ever visited you would see this as well. In my community the members that live near me do look like me in many ways. Mostly because I live in Shepherdsville, Kentucky, that are all white skinned that lives around me. Most of the people who are in my community are females, which is weird because you would think it would be even. Now we are also different in my community because some of us are short, tall, fat, skinny, have brown hair or even have blond hair. I know my son has blond hair and I have brown. We look a like but the hair color is completely different. The leaders that we have in our society actually treat people like me very well. We get respected just like others who do not look like me. There is not a lot of racism in my community compared to other places. There is an issue in school with bullying but its basically picking on anyone and not just one individual who may be different. Our leaders look at our society as we are all the same time of person. I believe that others in my community treat people like me the same that they would treat their......

On the Waterfront Arguments

...On the Waterfront is a 1954 American movie about mob violence and corruption among longshoremen. The movie was directed by Elia Kazan and it stars Marlon Brando as Terry Malloy, and Eva Marie Saint as Edie Doyle. Terry Malloy was a washed-up fighter working on the docks for the local gang boss, Johnny Friendly. The death of Joey Doyle (dockworker), ordered by Johnny Friendly, filled him with guilt because he was involved in the murder. Later in the film, Terry met the murdered man’s church-girl sister, Edie Doyle, and they began a relationship. She tried to convince him to work against his mob. However, Terry only turned against the mob after Johnny Friendly ordered the gang to kill his brother, Charley. Soon Terry testified publicly and became an outsider on the docks, but in the end, he achieved victory over Johnny Friendly after beating him in a dramatic fight on the docks. Before Terry made a name for himself, his egocentrism held him back. Because of his egocentrism, his arguments were unsound and it got him nowhere. His arguments flawed compared to the other characters in the film such as Edie Doyle. Edie’s arguments were sound. Her arguments were effective because during the film she found a way to persuade her father to let her stay in New York. So as a result, in On the Waterfront, Edie Doyle’s arguments regarding the murder case are sound, but Terry’s are flawed. One of Edie’s sound arguments was presented in the scene where she was with her father in their......

On the Waterfront - Labor Relations Paper

...Introduction On the Waterfront is a 1954 film starring Marlon Brando as longshoreman Terry Malloy. The film focuses on union violence and mob involvement among dockworkers in New York. It is based on "Crime on the Waterfront", a series of articles in the New York Sun by Malcolm Johnson. The series won the 1949 Pulitzer Prize for Local Reporting. The stories detailed widespread corruption, extortion and racketeering on the waterfronts of Manhattan and Brooklyn (Mills). The film was a huge critical and commercial success and received 12 Academy Award nominations, winning eight awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor for Marlon Brando, Best Supporting Actress for the debut of Eva Marie Saint, and Best Director for Elia Kazan (Oscar history). Director’s Purpose Director Elia Kazan’s main purpose in making this film was to portray the faces behind the corruption and violence facing those in some waterfront unions. His intent was not to create a documentary but instead show the emotions of the people involved. The first page of the Waterfront shooting script contained the director’s note “[d]on’t be objective! This is not a Documentary” (Almereyda). By placing the focus on a few main characters rather than the larger union group, the director was better able to play out Terry’s inner conflict with himself as well as his personal relationship with Edie Doyle and his professional relationship with Johnny Friendly. In a sentiment echoed by the numerous awards this......

On the Waterfront

...Edie Doyle is by far the most powerful agent of change in ‘On the Waterfront’. Do you agree? ‘On the Waterfront’, directed by Elia Kazan, explores the issues of corruption, love, truth and justice. Edie Doyle, the protagonist, Terry Malloy’s love interest and the major female role in the film, proves to be the most powerful agent of change. Her determination, feminist action and influence on key characters reflects her power in producing change on the corrupt waterfront, ruled by Johnny Friendly, the money-loving antagonist, and his Mob. It can be seen that every one of Edie’s actions and words have an impact on the changes and development of events and characters throughout the film. Edie’s determination and feminist outlook may be the key factor to the changes that occurred on the waterfront. At her brother Joey’s death she is the only person willing to speak, while the others, all namely men, act “D and D” (deaf and dumb). The body language of these men who stood around shamefully with their head hanging portray the power and domination of Johnny Friendly. It was their fear and loss of life that encouraged this silence. “You don’t ask no questions, you don’t answer no questions.” – Dugan. Edie, on the other hand, was the brave person in this event, not falling under the wing of Johnny’s corruption. “I wanna know who killed my brother!” her determination even drove her to give up her nunnery and dreams of becoming a teacher. Her father, Pop Doyle, reflects the duties......

...Il fenomeno waterfront inizia nelle città industriali del nord america intorno al 1930 per risp alla grande crisi post industriale. L’industrializzazione, spesso poco rispettosa dell’ambiente, una volta cessata aveva lasciato spazi dimessi e degradati spesso in pieno centro. L’esaurirsi degli spazi post industriali e la necessità di realizzare nuove infrastrutture viarie hanno determinato la necessità di rivisitazione dei waterfront. Le città non hanno con il mare un atteggiamento univoco: il mare può essere visto cm una risorsa, un occasione da cui lucrare una rendita di posizione o un accidente geografico. L’estensione ottimale dell’intervento varia da caso a caso: si passa da interventi che interessano una fascia limitata di tessuto urbano prospiciente all’acqua ad un intervento complessivo che coinvolge l’insieme di sistemi urbani nello stesso tratto funzionale di costa. In qst ultimo caso si parla di sistema metropolitano costiero, caratterizzato da un tessuto urbano ininterrotto e da un ente governativo unico; è un sistema unico ed eterogeneo, in cui elemento solido e liquido si intrecciano. Si arriva poi a un sistema locale di porti qnd attività che potrebbero essere svolte dalla stesso porto xk inerenti allo stesso bacino di utenza vengono trasferite in più siti x creare un sistema sinergico che ripartisce le attività rispetto alle loro funzioni.

On the Waterfront

...Text Response Practice –On the water front ‘Terry Malloy’s redemption lies in his willingness to sacrifice personal security to facilitate the long term security of a community.’ Discuss this statement On the Waterfront demonstrates that it is possible for a man to redeem himself through personal sacrifice to atone for his sins. In his 1954 film Elia Kazan creates a character in Terry whose initial motivation is personal and family based, and it is only near the end of the film that Terry becomes aware that he can be a hero for the longshoremen and the entire community. He must grow and develop as a hero of almost mythic stature before the audience, so that they are attracted in the outcome of his struggles. Terry Malloy is guilty of treachery as he lured the unsuspecting Joey Doyle on to the rooftop where he was murdered by Johnny Friendly’s thugs. Terry was an unwitting accomplice, believing naively that the men were just going to ‘rough him up’. It is evident from early in the film that Terry feels guilt for his involvement and is becoming increasingly uncomfortable with his relationship with Friendly. It is Edie Doyle who seems to best illustrate the concept of placing the wellbeing of others before her own personal security. She ventures into the harsh male domain of the docks, inspires Father Barry to organize a clandestine meeting in the church and makes herself vulnerable as the only woman who attends that meeting. She is ferocious in her......

...Community Assessment and Analysis - Rio Grande Michele Foster, Chelsea Simpson, Cinimol Teju, Ann Brennan, Jessica Ramaley Grand Canyon University Community Assessment and Analysis - Rio Grande The lower Rio Grande Valley is located along the United States and Mexican border. The lower Rio Grande Valley consists of four counties along the southernmost tip of Texas (Migrant Health Promotion, 2012). These counties include metropolitan areas such as Rio Grande City, McAllen, Harlingen, and Brownsville (Migrant Health Promotion, 2012). The Rio Grande Valley is nestled right along the Rio Grande River which is why the area is so abundant in agriculture. In phenomenological communities, place is emphasized more by the sense of belonging among the members (Maurer & Smith, 2009). The lower Rio Grande Valley has over one million people in which 90 percent of the population is Hispanic (Migrant Health Promotion, 2012). The Valley is known to be home to one of the largest concentrations of farm workers in the United States (Migrant Health Promotion, 2012). A considerable amount of farm workers travel from Mexico to work in agriculture in the United States and because of this, the members of this community can relate. Four counties in the southern tip of Texas along the Mexican border make up the Lower Rio Grande Valley.   Over 1 million people make up this population with 85 to 98% being Hispanic.  It is made up of over 2,000 colonias and most of residents.  Colonia is......

...really is, however the dictionary defines “community” as “a social group of any size whose members reside in a specific locality, share government, and often have a common cultural and historical heritage”. A virtual community consists only of people that use their computers as the means of communication; however, they never meet personally. People discuss various ideas, share common interests, and find friends and partners with the help of virtual communities. Virtual communities exist, and there are a lot of them nowadays. People like communicating on-line, thus, virtual communities also have some advantages in comparison with real communities. Both real communities and virtual ones serve the same purpose – communication, which creates lasting relationship between people. There are many obvious distinctions between “real” communities and “virtual” communities. The most noticeable is the difference in communication, including the lack of physical presence within the “virtual” communities. In a “real” community, messages include much unspoken communication, such as body language, which can dramatically change the meaning of the message. “Virtual” communities have nothing more than their words and “emoticons” to portray emotion within their messages. This can be either a benefit or a detriment. Emotion may get in the way of the necessary communication, but it also might be a critical part of the message. The basic idea of a community is a group of people, which is......
