This One's For dandt1174
22 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Roland Reed was one of the most prolific TV producers of the 1950's, and "Waterfront" ranks near the top of his creative output. Preston Foster was tailor-made for the role of "Cap'n John Herrick". He looks and acts the part, perhaps more so than than any other leading man or character actor of the time might have done. The stories are well-written and easy to wrap your arms around. The music, composed and arranged by long-time Roland Reed associate Alexander Laszlo, stands on its own quite well (as does Laszlo's work on so many other Roland Reed productions), but in the case of the haunting and melodic "Waterfront" theme, stands out all the more.
