*** (out of 4)
Good featurette taking a look at the legendary "I coulda been a contender..." sequence from ON THE WATERFRONT, which featured Marlon Brando and Rod Steiger playing brothers confronting one another. Steiger is interviewed about the sequences as are James Lipton, Martin Landau, Richard Schickel and Brando biographer Patricia Bosworth. The featurette starts off with the guests talking about why they feel the scene is so great. This of course gets into a long topic dealing with the choices that the actors made and how they didn't try and turn the scene into something macho or what you'd typically see in a gangster picture. The last part of this has Steiger talking about various difficulties that came up including the fact that the rear projection didn't show up on the day of filming and there's also talk about Brando leaving at four o'clock and leaving Steiger to film his shots by himself. The Brando biographer tries to explain what happened but Steiger is certainly honest about his feelings.
