Texts in the City: On the Waterfront

Listen to Texts in the City: On the Waterfront

No matter how compelling a novel or a film might be, if you have to study it, there’s always the risk you’ll end up hating it. Not any more! A gift to VCE students, their teachers (and of course life-long learners) Texts in the City is a weekly exploration of the classic texts – both old and new – that appear on the VCE English reading lists.

In this instalment, film critic Thomas Caldwell joins Ruby Murray to discuss Elia Kazan’s film On the Waterfront.

We also discussed this film in 2011’s Texts in the City series, with Margaret Pomeranz and David Stratton. Watch the video here.
