On the Waterfront

On the Waterfront (1954)

1 corrected entry

Corrected entry: In the famous 'I coulda been a contenda' scene, Brando is on the right side of the taxi, ie. behind the driver, Steiger is on the left. Steiger decides not to kill him, tells the cabbie to stop and tells Brando to get out. We then see the cab from the outside as Brando gets out on the left - Steiger's side.

Correction: Taxicabs of that era typically had extra space between the front and back seats, to allow passengers to exit onto the sidewalk without having to exit onto the street or inconveniencing other passengers.
