On the Waterfront by Budd Schulberg

Book Description

Budd Schulberg's classic story of the New York waterfront and the kid who "coulda been a contender" is best known in its memorable movie version with Marlon Brando. But here, adapted for the stage by Mr. Schulberg and Stan Silverman, it remains a moving and powerful drama. This play script for On the Waterfront has been used in theatres large and small, throughout the country, to great success. It offers amateur and professional groups an opportunity to re-create Mr. Schulberg's indelible characters and highly charged moments. Helpful stage suggestions are included, and the author introduces the script with a reminiscence that is both poignant and informative. As with all Plays for Performance books, this one is presented with production values uppermost in mind.

Books By Author Budd Schulberg

Disenchanted by Budd Schulberg Disenchanted, Paperback (April 2013)

A portrait of an age of both dazzling spirit and bitter disillusionment, based on the last drunken days of F. Scott Fitzgerald. The 1920s: a golden age, and Manley Halliday is a golden figure. But years later, in the very different atmosphere of the thirties, Halliday is a shadow of his former self, cast up on the inhospitable shores of Hollywood.

Harder They Fall by Budd Schulberg Harder They Fall, Paperback (April 2013)

"He may be a giant but giants have been licked before. Don't forget Goliath. The bigger they are, the harder they fall." Eddie Lewis never expected to make his living writing lies, but that's what he does to pay his rent: Eddie is a manipulator of headlines, an inventor of hyperbole, on behalf of his boss Nick Latka and the boxing business.

Ringside by Budd Schulberg Ringside, Paperback (March 2010)

Offering a collection of the boxing stories, this title takes us all the way back to an epic bare-knuckle contest in England. It presents a portrait of 'Uncle' Mike Jacobs, the promotional impresario of boxing in its golden age. It also deals with the careers of the great names - Tyson, Holyfield, de la Hoya, Hopkins, 'Chico' Corrales, and more.

On the Waterfront by Budd Schulberg On the Waterfront, Paperback (March 2008)

Former boxer Terry Malloy and his brother Charley, the crooked lawyer known to all as 'the Gent', are members of the tough, mobster-connected New York Longshoremen Union, run by Johnny Friendly. Johnny and his goons rule the waterfront with an iron fist, meaning that if you want to stay alive, you do things Johnny's way.
